François-Xavier Roth and Albrecht Mayer

Igor Stravinsky was a composer of the avant-garde, but he also frequently took up the legacy of music history. François-Xavier Roth, general music director of the city of Cologne, presents both sides during this concert. On the one hand, there is the groundbreaking ballet Petrushka, which combines a magical fairground atmosphere with a visionary musical idiom. In his charming Divertimento, on the other hand, Stravinsky pays his respects to Peter Tchaikovsky’s ballets. No less graceful is Johann Sebastian Bach’s Oboe Concerto in A major, performed by Albrecht Mayer, principal oboe of the Berliner Philharmoniker.
