The Berliner Philharmoniker and chief conductor Kirill Petrenko welcome the new year with a very special style of Viennese dance music. Incidental music by Erich Wolfgang Korngold enriches a Shakespeare comedy with Viennese air, Richard Strauss celebrates the culture of coffee houses in his ballet Schlagobers (‘Whipped Cream‘), while Maurice Ravel offers an ecstatically explosive version of the Viennese waltz in La Valse. Another highlight is Max Bruch’s First Violin Concerto with Janine Jansen, the turbulent Finale of which is unmistakably inspired by the Hungarian part of the Habsburg Monarchy.
