Philharmonie »Late Night«

Late night with Esa-Pekka Salonen

In his works – says Esa-Pekka Salonen – there must “always be room for irony and laughter”. In this Late Night, you can discover the humorous side of our Composer in Residence, such as in his fantasy Saltat Sobrius, which was inspired by the rhythmic drive of a medieval choral movement and conjures up the image of drunken dancers. Or Salonen’s instrumental piece Fog which was inspired by Bach’s Prelude from the Third Partita for Violin, whose melody flashes through the music again and again.
