Musikfest Berlin

Ferruccio Busoni’s Piano Concerto op. 39 is a work of architectonic dimensions: demanding extreme virtuosity and lasting over an hour, complete with a rousing choral finale. The scale of the piece means that it is rarely programmed. But now it can be heard in Berlin thanks to Igor Levit and the orchestra and choir of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia under Antonio Pappano. The evening opens with Arnold Schönberg’s “Verklärte Nacht”.
