About This Event

For their second concert, the Berliner Philharmoniker and its Music Director Designate Kirill Petrenko pair two of the 19th century’s greatest symphonic poems with Beethoven’s much-loved Seventh Symphony. If Don Juan celebrates the life of the body – energetic passions, desires and cynical ambitions – then the composer’s Death and Transfiguration, a vivid portrait of the last hours of a dying artist, explores ideas of the mind and spirit. These two colourful musical narratives are set against the dance-driven energy of Beethoven’s symphony. See ‘All Types of Beethoven
