Kirill Petrenko conducts Mozart, Berg and Brahms
Kirill Petrenko traverses the German-Austrian musical tradition with works that repeatedly look into abysses. Mozart’s Symphony No. 29 fascinates with a combination of light-heartedness and subliminal despair; in Berg’s Three Pieces for orchestra, echoes of waltzes and marches are nightmarishly distorted. Brahms’s Fourth Symphony is one of the most magnificent works of the late Romantic repertoire and is pervaded with touching melancholy.
