    “There are few poets at the piano today – one of them is Seong-Jin Cho,” was the verdict of Simon Rattle after the young Korean made his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker in 2017. In December 2020, he played Franz Liszt’s lyrical Second Piano Concerto under the baton of Andris Nelsons. His performance was framed by Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture and the momentous Fifth Symphony, which brought the Beethoven anniversary celebrations slowly to a close.

    Actually, eleven-year old Andris Nelsons was only looking for music for meditation when he came across Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony, where he was immediately enthusiastic about its mystical atmosphere of nature. Here the Latvian conductor – one of the leading Mahler interpreters of our time – is presenting the composer’s first symphonic work with the Berliner Philharmoniker. In addition, we will hear Igor Stravinsky’s violin concerto with soloist Baiba Skride, who for many years has been one of Andris Nelsons’s artistic partners.

    Alain Altinoglu conducts two works that in different ways deserve the attribute “enchanting”. On the one hand there is the graceful ballet Pulcinella, in which Igor Stravinsky enriches 18th century music with his own harmonies and rhythms. Georges Bizet’s Symphony in C major, on the other hand – the work of a 17-year-old! – conveys irresistible youthful energy.
