Berliner Philharmoniker
Marc Minkowski

  • Joseph Haydn
    Symphony No. 59 in A major “Fire Symphony”

  • Franz Liszt
    Prometheus, Symphonic Poem No. 5

  • Ludwig van Beethoven
    The Creatures of Prometheus, ballet music, op. 43

Prometheus is the figure of light of the Enlightenment and at the same time emblem of its impossibility. With Haydn’s, Beethoven’s and Liszt’s adaptations of this myth, Prometheus’s heroic commitment to humanity by stealing fire and his hubris as a disruptive element of social order are both illuminated and interpreted on this programme.
