About the Event
The concert to remember for days to come awaits you at Berlin's Philharmonie in a highly‐anticipated classical music program where Daniil Trifonov brings you the art of Franck, Ravel and Skrjabin.
The Philharmonie is a concert hall opened in 1963 in West Berlin. It is considered the musical heart of the German capital, as well as the new urban centre after the fall of the infamous Berlin Wall. Its distinctive bright yellow exterior and unusual tent‐like shape quickly made it a city landmark. The surprising design and architecture were initially viewed negatively by many, but the Philharmonie is now considered a model for concert halls worldwide. The architect, Hans Scharoun, aimed to design a concert hall in which the focal point — the musicians on the concert platform — is equally visible from every seat, an aim that gave rise to the hall's unusual shape. Since its inauguration, the Berliner Philharmonie has hosted numerous concerts, often featuring acclaimed soloists and conductors.
- Ravel, Maurice – »Ma mère l’oye« – Suite für Orchester
- Skrjabin, Alexander – Konzert für Klavier und Orchester fis‐Moll op. 20
- Franck, César – Symphonie d‐moll
|Orchestra:|| Orchestre National de France |
The Orchestre National de France, a Radio France formation, was the first permanent symphonic orchestra to be established in France. Désiré-Emile Inghelbrecht, its first accredited conductor, founded the Orchestra’s musical tradition that afforded pride of place to French music. After the war, Manuel Rosenthal, André Cluytens, Roger Désormière, Charles Munch, Maurice Le Roux and Jean Martinon perpetuated this tradition.
