Vladimir Jurowski and Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin will launch their new season with two concerts at Musikfest Berlin on 5 and 11 September. Both concert programmes will pay homage to the music of Anton Webern, which shaped the sound of the 20th century and saw itself as emerging from the tradition of Viennese classicism. The RSB’s first concert combines Webern’s highly concentrated orchestra pieces with the expressive torsi of Alban Berg’s opera Wozzeck. They will be confronted with the symphonic music of Alfred Schnittke, which seeks to find proximity with Gustav Mahler’s music, from which Berg’s and Webern’s musical language developed.
