Kirill Petrenko conducts Strauss, Shostakovich and Norman @BerlinPhill

Andrew Norman’s Sabina was beautiful.

Chief conductor Kirill Petrenko presents two works that reflect the end of the Second World War in very different ways. On the one hand Richard Strauss’s Metamorphosen: a web of sound for 23 solo strings that with warmth and transparency mourns a devastated world. In the case of Shostakovich’s Ninth Symphony, the Soviet rulers hoped for a victory symphony – but received a bright, ironic work that refuses to rejoice.

Berliner Philharmoniker

Listening to The Berlin Phil Series: “Kirill Petrenko Live” Sat, 23 May 2020, 10:00 After the European Concert, which was moving for everyone involved, chief conductor Kirill Petrenko now appears once again with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker in an empty Philharmonie.
