Neeme Järvi conversa con Stanley Dodds (17 min)

Neeme Järvi, whose sons Paavo and Kristjan have also conducted the Berliner Philharmoniker, took over the concert programme of the indisposed Kirill Petrenko at short notice in December 2010. The programme included Richard Strauss’ youthful tone poem Don Juan and Tchaikovsky’s Francesca da Rimini, plus Dmitri Shostakovich’s late 14th Symphony, infused with death and reminiscent of Mahler’s Song of the Earth. Järvi, who knew Shostakovich personally, speaks here with the Philharmoniker’s violinist Stanley Dodds about a concert programme in which the end of life finds musical expression.
