Berliner Philharmoniker & Kirill Petrenko at Festspielhaus Baden‐Baden

About the Event

The success of Jean Sibelius' Violin Concerto in Berlin in 1905 was greatly attributed to the assistance of Richard Strauss, who had previously failed to materialize its success at its premiere in Finland. During the interim, Sibelius had distanced himself from Helsinki and revisited the concerto, incorporating influences from the serenity and isolation of his new lakeside home. Lisa Batiashvili brings forth her interpretation of this emotionally charged composition by the Finnish composer, who himself had once aspired to be a virtuoso violinist.

Following the performance of Sibelius' concerto, Kirill Petrenko conducts the Berliner Philharmoniker as they present Johannes Brahms' beloved "Fourth" Symphony. This symphony was first performed in Meiningen under Brahms' own direction. It is worth noting that Hans von Bülow, a frequent summer visitor to Baden‐Baden like Brahms, had played a significant role in advocating for the performance of this piece.
