At this concert from the Easter Festival in Baden-Baden, the Berliner Philharmoniker, Sir Simon Rattle and the Latvian mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča performed music from the early 20th century – an incredibly exciting epoch, in which the developments of the dawning Modernism began to be felt, while the sensuousness of late Romanticism still echoed.

The “Seven Early Songs” by Alban Berg are youthful works from the early twentieth century, later revised and orchestrated by Berg. Maurice Ravel’s three-part cycle “Shéhérazade” was premiered in 1903; the protagonist is the famous storyteller from the “One Thousand And One Nights” collection of tales. With “Petrushka”, Stravinsky captures the colour of a nineteenth-century Russian fair. Richard Strauss’s “Don Juan” is characterized by a combination of youthful temperament and astonishing compositional self-assurance.
Throughout her outstanding career, mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča has received a great number of honours, including the Musical America’s “Vocalist of the Year” 2010, MIDEM’s “Singer of the Year” and the ECHO Klassik award for “Female Singer of the Year” both in 2007.
