Kirill Petrenko conducts Bartók’s “The Wooden Prince”

Only when someone overcomes his pride does he encounter true love: that is the message of Béla Bartók’s The Wooden Prince. This exquisitely orchestrated dance pantomime, which alternates between sensuousness and realism, helped the composer achieve his breakthrough. Kirill Petrenko has also programmed another work that was a milestone in its composer’s career: Henri Dutilleux’s First Symphony.
