Kirill Petrenko Conducts Stravinsky, Stephan and Scriabin
Tuesday, April 12, 2016
Last summer, the classical music world turned its attention to Berlin as its philharmonic elected a successor to current chief conductor, Sir Simon Rattle. The name that emerged: Kirill Petrenko. On the fifth installment of WQXR's exclusive series of live recordings, taped at the orchestra's Berlin home, you'll hear Petrenko lead the Philharmonic in a rousing program of Stravinsky, Stephan and Scriabin.
Rounding out the program, are Haydn's Symphony No. 89 and a preview of next week's episode, featuring pianist Till Fellner. Both are taken from separate performances of the Berlin Philharmonic. Terrance McKnight hosts.
