Kirill Petrenko and Yuja Wang
Maurice Ravel’s ecstatic, sonorous Boléro under the night sky of Berlin – the Berliner Philharmoniker and Kirill Petrenko could hardly end the season at the Waldbühne in a more atmospheric way.
Before that, star pianist Yuja Wang is the soloist in Rachmaninov’s sparkling, virtuosic Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini – a work in which the musician can show off her perfect technical skills and her creative power to best advantage. Ravel’s Suite No. 2 from the shimmering and impressionistic ballet Daphnis et Chloé also transports the listener to a pastoral idyll of ancient mythology.
