Claudio Abbado conducts music inspired by the Prometheus myth

One of the hallmarks of Claudio Abbado’s years with the Berliner Philharmoniker was his fondness for programming cycles of concerts on particular themes. Central to this concert from 1992 is the myth of Prometheus. It features music by Beethoven, Liszt and Nono, culminating in Scriabin’s highly virtuosic Prométhée in which the piano soloist is Martha Argerich. No less remarkable is the original filming by director Christopher Swann.
