    Pohádka léta (A Summer’s Tale), Symphonic Poem, op. 29

After performing Josef Suk’s Asrael Symphony with the Berliner Philharmoniker in season 2019/2020, chief conductor Kirill Petrenko is now programming another major work by the Czech composer: the large-scale symphonic poem A Summer’s Tale. Like Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto, premiered in 1936, where Frank Peter Zimmermann can be heard as the soloist, the work is shaped by its composer’s dramatic personal experiences: autobiographical music that casts a spell on the listeners.
