Santtu-Matias Rouvali and Víkingur Ólafsson

John Adams describes his piano concerto Must the devil have all the good tunes? as a “funky danse macabre”. Pianist Víkingur Ólafsson has chosen the energetic work for his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker, with Santtu-­Matias Rouvali, principal conductor of London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, on the podium. Also on the programme are Helix, by Composer in Residence Esa­-Pekka Salonen, and Sergei Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony.
