Sir George Benjamin conducts the Berliner Philharmoniker
George Benjamin has made a name for himself as the creator of powerful, multi-layered works, and this season is the Berliner Philharmoniker’s Composer in Residence. On this occasion in the role of conductor, he presents music by Boulez, Ravel and Ligeti, which show musical Modernism from its most original side. We also hear Benjamin’s own Palimpsests – a work that is “full of contrasts. In just eight minutes, it packs in as much as some entire symphonies” (The Guardian).
