Celebrated as a sensational talent, violinist Himari makes her debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker at the age of just 13 – the same age as Anne-Sophie Mutter. Other exceptional soloists can be heard in this series: Vilde Frang in Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s film-musical, lush violin concerto and artist in residence Seong-Jin Cho with Guillaume Jehl in Dmitri Shostakovich’s concerto for piano and trumpet. Kirill Petrenko conducts Dvořák’s dramatic Seventh Symphony, Tugan Sokhiev Mahler’s First Symphony, interspersed with folk songs and nature sounds, and Gustavo Dudamel interprets Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony, which tells of the power of fate. The US conductor Marin Alsop devotes herself to Copland’s atmospherically dense ballet music Appalachian Spring.
