9 Mar Saturday, 20 Uhr Philharmonie Berlin

Petr Popelka & Pierre-Laurent Aimard

Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin

Schönberg's Piano Concerto was composed in the time shortly before the end of the Second World War. In the United Kingdom, the work was played one day before Germany's capitulation. On this evening in the Philharmonic Hall, the work will be played beside Mahler's Symphony No. 1, which was premiered half a century earlier, creating a rift in the audience: a rift between "Mahler lovers and Mahler haters" (Karl Kraus).
