Season opening 2023: Kirill Petrenko conducts “Ein Heldenleben”
A hero, malevolent adversaries and a faithful companion – they all appear in Richard Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life). The work, in which Strauss draws parallels to his own life, dazzles listeners with sumptuous tonal splendour. Kirill Petrenko launches the 2023/24 season and the thematic focus “Heroes” with it. Also on the programme is Max Reger’s Mozart Variations. We will present a special accompanying programme 30 minutes before the concert begins.
