Kirill Petrenko conducts the German National Youth Orchestra

Working with the German National Youth Orchestra is something close to Kirill Petrenko’s heart, so on the occasion of the orchestra’s 50th anniversary, the chief conductor designate of the Berliner Philharmoniker couldn’t turn down the opportunity to join them for a jubilee concert. In addition to rousing compositions by Leonard Bernstein and Igor Stravinsky, the programme also includes a contemporary work: William Kraft’s First Timpani Concerto with the Philharmoniker’s principal timpanist Wieland Welzel as the soloist.
