The Berlin Phil Series: Modern times

Orchestral and chamber music of the 1920s and 30s from Hungary, Russia and England: in the penultimate episode of the Berlin Phil Series, members of the Berliner Philharmoniker presented the diversity of Modernism. In addition, Béla Bartók and the jazz composer Chick Corea had a musical encounter in short pieces for vibraphone and piano, and Bartók’s orchestral suite The Miraculous Mandarin is presented in an archive recording. Shostakovich’s virtuosic and sardonic First Piano Concerto with the pianist Denis Matsuev and the Philharmoniker’s trumpeter Guillaume Jehl formed a spectacular conclusion.
