About the Event

Ludwig van Beethoven revolutionized the piano concerto, granting it a new symphonic status. In his groundbreaking 'Third' concerto, he broke free from the traditional forms established by his predecessors Mozart and Haydn. This radical transformation is evident not only in the famous dialogue between the piano and timpani but throughout the entire composition.

Similarly, Anton Bruckner's 7th Symphony, which was publicly unveiled in 1884, represented a significant innovation in its genre. Today, it stands as one of the finest masterpieces ever created. Acting as the catalyst for this magnum opus, Artur Nickisch served as the midwife of this symphony. Appointed as the chief conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic in 1895, Nickisch made history in 1913 by supervising the orchestra's first continuous recording of a symphony.

Jan Lisiecki, the evening's soloist, amazed audiences at the Festspielhaus Baden‐Baden in January 2023, leaving a lasting impression with his virtuosic performance.

Artists

Conductor: Tugan Sokhiev
Orchestra: Berliner Philharmoniker

Peter Tchaikovsky, a frequent guest of the Philharmonic Society, enthused after a concert:

"The splendid Philharmonic Orchestra in Berlin possesses a special quality, for which I can find no more appropriate expression than elasticity. They have the capacity to adapt themselves to the dimensions of a Berlioz or a Liszt, and of reproducing with equal mastery the variegated arabesques of the former and the thunderous cannonades of the latter — yet they are able to exercise the restraint called for by the gentleness of a Haydn…. The members of the Philharmonic Orchestra do not work in the theaters and are therefore not worn out and exhausted. Moreover, they are a self‐governing body, they play for their own benefit and not for an entrepreneur who takes the lion's share of the profits for himself. The coincidence of these favorable and exceptional conditions naturally contributes to the harmony of the artistic performance…"

Piano: Jan Lisiecki
