Kirill Petrenko by Christoph Brech
The Guardian called Kirill Petrenko, the Bayerische Staatsoper’s music director, “a conductor of huge talent and a person of absolute seriousness and complete commitment to the music he’s performing, as well as a musician of deep humility.” They also praised the “incandescent intensity he brings to his performances.” Petrenko is at the helm of the legendary orchestra in his eagerly awaited Carnegie Hall concert debut.

At a Glance

This concert presents two rarely performed masterpieces by two familiar composers, Brahms and Tchaikovsky. Brahms’s Concerto for Violin and Cello in A Minor—his last piece for orchestra and a summation of his mature art—requires two virtuoso soloists of equal caliber who must subtly interact with the orchestra and with each other rather than indulging in star solo turns. Tchaikovsky’s hybrid symphony–tone poem, Manfred, is his most epic, mystical, and ambitious symphonic work. Its length, difficulty, and large forces are often blamed for its neglect, though the symphonies of Mahler and Bruckner—once shunned for the same reasons—are now frequently performed. Both pieces had difficult receptions and were criticized by the composers themselves, and both were eventually received more favorably in recordings.
