Kirill Petrenko and Christian Gerhaher

A concert full of orchestral force: Karl Amadeus Hartmann’s Gesangsszene from Sodom and Gomorrah – composed in 1962/63 under the shadow of the arms race between the superpowers – outlines a vision of the end of the world. Kirill Petrenko presented the powerful work with baritone Christian Gerhaher. Also dramatic are Iannis Xenakis’s Jonchaies and György Kurtág’s Stele. The world premiere of a new work by Márton Illés will be heard as well.
