Berlioz Overture, Le Corsaire
Rachmaninoff Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
Brahms Symphony No. 2

Vasily Petrenko conductor
Kirill Gerstein piano

Overlooking Lake Wörthersee in the small Austrian resort of Pörtschach, Johannes Brahms set about creating a symphony that captured all he saw: a clear, light day; the infinite beauty of the sunset; the stillness of night; a peaceful awakening and gratitude for another day – the miracle of life. And yet its musicians were to play, said Brahms, as if ‘with a ribbon of mourning around their arm’. Such meeting of glowing melancholy and piercing brightness created what many consider Brahms’s finest symphony. In contrast Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini is a rapturous and devious dance, played here by the supremely gifted Kirill Gerstein.
