Karajan Academy

Daniel Harding conducts the Karajan Academy

This Karajan Academy programme draws on the tension between contemporary and Classical music. The latter marks the beginning and end of the evening with Haydn’s Symphony No. 90, in which the composer humorously plays with the audience’s expectations, and Mozart’s majestic “Jupiter Symphony”. In between, we will hear Jörg Widmann’s enigmatic Choralquartett and Benjamin Britten’s cycle Nocturne, in which tenor Andrew Staples gives expression to a range of nocturnal moods. The conductor is Daniel Harding, who made his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker in 1996 at the age of 21.
