Event Details

Under the direction of Stefan Dohr, Principal Horn of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, this program takes us on a journey from Mozart’s Vienna to 21st-century Paris; for, as Romantic as they are, the works by the young Richard Strauss, and Liszt’s pupil Joachim Raff, are infused with the spirit of Mozart’s wind music. Berio’s piece is a set of fractured fairy tales for speaker and wind quintet: stories of chickens, fawns, mice and cats that don’t quite go where you expect them to. There is also a powerful sense of theatre to the work by the contemporary French composer Vinko Globokar. Like Strauss and Raff, Brett Dean does some subtle time-travelling in his Three Pieces, music written for, and inspired by, the Berlin Philharmonic’s horn section, which takes as its starting point Mahler’s haunting writing for horns in his Symphony no. 3.
