Why See Berliner Philharmoniker?
Returning as part of their 2016 tour
The Berliner Philharmoniker are back in the USA on tour under the expert baton of Sir Simon Rattle. For their San Francisco engagement later this November, the world-famous orchestra will be celebrating the works of the legendary composers Schoenberg, Webern, and Berg, the three central figures of the Second Viennese School. Often considered technically brilliant, yet emotionally muted, Rattle and his esteemed orchestra are going to show you just why those three artists' works were so misunderstood, aiming to showcase the overwhelming expressiveness that form the key basis for each piece.
Since their inception in 1882, The Berliner Philarmoniker have come to be associated with world class talent, performing all over the globe and becoming one of the most widely recognised orchestras.The performance pieces at this engagement are as follows: Anton Webern's Six Pieces for large orchestra op. 6b; Arnold Schoenber's Five Pieces for orchestra op. 16; Alban Berg's Three Pieces for orchestra op. 6 Johannes Brahms' Symphony No. 2 in D major op. 73.
