Kirill Petrenko conducts Beethoven’s “Pastoral”

Beethoven’s Pastoral, conducted here by Kirill Petrenko, reflects how peaceful and at the same time threatening nature can be. It exuberantly celebrates the idyllic nature of country life, which, however, proves to be fragile and is swept away by a storm. Miroslav Srnka’s Superorganisms – in its German premiere – embodies a completely different kind of natural phenomenon. It provides a fascinating depiction of life forms that can only exist synergistically.
