Kirill Petrenko conducts Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov
In this concert, Kirill Petrenko presents three passionate symphonic poems from Russia. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky is represented by two tragic love stories: the Fantasy Overture Romeo and Juliet – the 29-year-old composer’s first masterpiece – and the fantasy for orchestra Francesca da Rimini. From Sergei Rachmaninov, a composer who is particularly close to Kirill Petrenko’s heart, we also hear his mysterious and sombre Isle of the Dead, inspired by Arnold Böcklin’s painting of the same name.
