Berliner Philharmoniker

Santtu­-Matias Rouvali & Víkingur Ólafsson

Concert

Herbert-von-Karajan-Str. 1, 10785 Berlin

Description

John Adams describes his piano concerto Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes? as a “funky danse macabre”. Pianist Víkingur Ólafsson has chosen the energetic, diabolical work for his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker, with the youthful Santtu-­Matias Rouvali, principal conductor of London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, at the podium. Also on the programme are Helix, by our Composer in Residence Esa­-Pekka Salonen, which builds from an idyllic opening to its vehement conclusion, and Sergei Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony, one of the composer’s most popular works.
