John Eliot Gardiner conducts Stravinsky

After an absence of 14 years, Sir John Eliot Gardiner returned to the Berliner Philharmoniker with this Stravinsky evening. The focus is on the opera oratorio Oedipus Rex, whose archaic force unmistakeably inspired Carl Orff in composing his Carmina Burana. The ballet Apollon musagète also harks back to older music – but in its bright Baroque grace conjures up an entirely different world of sound.
