Symphonic home story

Richard Strauss’s opulent »Sinfonia domestica« could be described as a kind of home story for orchestra, painting as it does an entertaining picture of the composer’s own family life. Who better to bring the finer points of such a brilliant score to life than the Berlin Philharmonic under their conductor Kirill Petrenko?

One of Strauss’s great role models was his fellow composer and pianist Franz Liszt, who wrote not only one of bis best-known but also one of his most dramatic tone poems between 1848 and 1854: »Les Préludes«.

While Liszt embodied the 19th century pure and unadulterated in his Romantic exuberance, the Polish composer Karol Szymanowski combines in his First Violin Concerto the tradition of this time with the new trends of the early 20th century. Performing the solo part is a rewarding task for the celebrated Georgian violin virtuoso Lisa Batiashvili, who makes this 1916 concerto shine, sing and blossom.
