    The Ripening, Symphonic Poem for orchestra and female choir, op. 34

    Ladies of the Rundfunkchor Berlin

One of Kirill Petrenko’s priorities is to introduce the music of Josef Suk to a larger audience. At this concert, he presents the symphonic poem Ripening, which combines late Romantic tonal splendour with modern harmony. Johannes Brahms was a supporter of Suk. We hear Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto, in which brusque force and tender feelings collide. The soloist is Sir András Schiff, a long-time partner of the Berliner Philharmoniker.
