Past Dates

Corresponding with the performance of Josef Suk’s “Summer Tale” by Kirill Petrenko and the Berliner Philharmoniker on 17, 18 and 19 September, the guests from Bamberg and their Chief Conductor Jakub Hrůša will present Suk’s Asrael symphony. The symphony bears the name of the angel of death from Islamic-Persian mythology and was written to commemorate the death of Antonín Dvořák and his daughter Otylka, who was Suk’s wife – a “symphony of fate” in C minor, the key of Beethoven’s Fifth.

Arnulf Herrmann’s new work for orchestra “Tour de Trance”, only recently premiered in Munich, resembles a surreal trip. The first movement in this four-part cycle is a “manic episode” – with its freewheeling motivity, the composer created another reminiscence of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.
