Our concert highlights at the Konzerthaus Berlin
Philippe HerrewegheRundfunk-Sinfonieorchester BerlinCollegium Vocale Gent Mozart
Philippe Herreweghe will conduct the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin for the first time, opening with nothing less than Mozart's Jupiter Symphony, a work just as enigmatic as it is admired. Following this, the RSB will perform the Mass in C minor, one of Mozart's late works (he was just 32 years old). Though it remained unfinished, hearing it in its entirety, we nonetheless get an idea of the dimensions he conceived of.
Salzburger Juwelen IRIAS KammerchorKonzerthausorchester Berlin Mozart
With some reluctance, after an otherwise unsuccessful search for employment, Mozart finally became court organist in Salzburg. This required that he compose sacred works: fortunately, one might say, since in the resulting compositions we can no longer detect any of his reluctance. The RIAS Kammerchor Berlin will demonstrate this together with soprano Nuria Rial, conducted by Iván Fischer at the Konzerthaus Berlin.
Vladimir Jurowski & Yefim BronfmanRundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin Beethoven, Firssowa, Shostakovich
Together with the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and pianist Yefim Bronfman, Vladimir Jurowski will perform Jelena Firssowa's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra – for the first time in Germany. In addition, you can hear Beethoven's Coriolan Overture to Collins's tragedy and Shostakovich's 4th Symphony, intended to constitute an archetype of the symphony in socialist realism – a high aim that Shostakovich pursued even at risk of his life.
Emmanuel Tjeknavorian & Anna VinnitskayaRundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin Chatschaturjan, Rachmaninoff, Mussorgski
The Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini is probably Sergei Rachmaninoff's best-known work besides the piano concertos; the 18th variation in particular shows this exceptional composer's romanticism. Alongside this work, conductor Emmanuel Tjeknavorian with the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin will perform Khachaturian's suite of music from his ballet "Gayane", a powerful work, as well as Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition".
Karina Canellakis & Behzod AbduraimovRundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin Janáček, Prokofiev, Dvořák
Together with the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, conductor Karina Canellakis will bring the sound of Dvořák's 7th Symphony, a pinnacle of his oeuvre, to the Konzerthaus Berlin. First, Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov will play Prokofiev's Concerto No. 3, an extremely popular work on account of its great musical ingenuity. The evening begins with the overture "Žárlivost" (Jealousy) to Leoš Janáček's opera "Jenufa", directly conferring a healthy piquancy to the concert.
