Love stories in performances by the Berliner Philharmoniker
Beginning with Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, this playlist is dedicated to the theme of love stories set to music. The orchestra’s performances are bundled in pairs, each in two stylistically quite different settings. With composers from different eras – including Handel, Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Verdi and Bernstein – we encounter famous lovers such as Romeo and Juliet, Othello and Desdemona, Pelleas and Melisande and Apollo and Dafne.
