Berliner Philharmoniker — Orchestra

François-Xavier Roth

Program notes

Follow celebrated conductor François-Xavier Roth and the incredible Berliner Philharmoniker to the Baden-Baden Easter Festival for a fascinating concert dedicated to Stravinsky!

The program begins with a magnificent but lesser-known work by Stravinsky, the orchestral suite from the ballet The Fairy’s Kiss, inspired by “Tchaikovsky’s muse”: an evocative, powerful score that transfigures works by the young Tchaikovsky in surprising and delightful ways.  The concert closes out with Stravinsky’s extraordinary Petrushka, a ballet brimming with modernity, in which the composer irrepressibly asserts his singular personality with a concise and elliptical musical language, familiar and easy melodies, and bold syncopated rhythms.
