Kirill Petrenko conducts Beethoven, Brahms and Schoenberg
After Beethoven’s Seventh and Ninth Symphonies, Kirill Petrenko now conducts the Eighth with the Berliner Philharmoniker, in which the composer humorously toys with the audience’s expectations. The programme also presents two sets of orchestral variations: the cheerful Haydn Variations by Johannes Brahms and Arnold Schoenberg’s Variations for Orchestra. Schoenberg’s work shows not least how much he was inspired by Brahms.
