The Berlin Phil Series: “Kirill Petrenko Live”

Three weeks after the European Concert, chief conductor Kirill Petrenko appeared again with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker in an otherwise empty Philharmonie. Debussy’s atmospheric, dream-like Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune was followed by the wild sounds of Hindemith’s Kammermusik No. 1, whose borrowings from popular music were perceived as a provocation by contemporary audiences. The concert ended with the sensuous Verklärte Nacht, an early masterstroke by Arnold Schoenberg. “You can’t play it more beautifully than this” (rbbKulturradio).
