Kirill Petrenko and András Schiff with works by Brahms and Suk

One of Kirill Petrenko’s major priorities is to introduce the music of Josef Suk to a larger audience. At this concert, he presents the symphonic poem Ripening, which combines late Romantic tonal splendour with modern harmony. Suk programmatically depicts many emotional aspects of life in this work, its joys and sorrows. Johannes Brahms was an early supporter of Suk. We hear Brahms’s Second Piano Concerto, in which brusque force and tender feelings collide. The soloist is András Schiff, a long-time partner of the Berliner Philharmoniker.
