Martha Argerich & Daniel Barenboim

Both come from Buenos Aires, both have made global careers for themselves. Martha Argerich and Daniel Barenboim are not only fellow countrymen; they also both began to give concerts in their youth, as soloists and with an orchestra. In addition, the two have a particular interest in chamber music in common - the repertoire spanning from the classics to modernism. They now appear together: a summit meeting of two of the most eminent pianists of the past few decades and of the present, something which is well worth looking forward to.

SOL GABETTA & SIR SIMON RATTLE IN BADEN-BADEN

Live recording from the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden
Live transmission 20.04.2014, 6:00 p.m. CET

Berliner Philharmoniker • Sir Simon Rattle, conductor

György Ligeti: Atmosphères
Richard Wagner: Prelude to Act 1 of the opera “Lohengrin”
Edward Elgar: Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85
Igor Stravinsky: Le Sacre du Printemps

It has changed over the years that Edward Elgar’s warm and melodically charged Cello Concerto –long considered to be behind the times– once again sounds modern and fresh. Sol Gabetta recently released a highly praised recording of the work and on Easter Sunday 2014 the cellist will make her debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker.

Puccini: Manon Lescaut

Live recording from the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden
Live transmission 16 April 2014, 6:00 p.m. CET


Opera in four acts by Giacomo Puccini after Histoire du Chevalier Des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut des Abbé Prévost
Berliner Philharmoniker • Sir Simon Rattle, conductor • Philharmonia Choir Vienna
Eva-Maria Westbroek, Manon Lescaut • Lester Lnych, Lescaut • Massimo Giordano, Chevalier Renato Des Grieux • Liang Li, Geronte de Ravoir • Bogdan Mihai, Edmond • Reinhard Dorn, Innkeeper • Magdalena Kožená, Singer • Kresimir Spicer, Dancing Master • Arthur Espiritu, Lamplighter • Johannes Kammler, Sergeant Richard Eyre, direction • Robert Howell, stage • Fotini Dimou, costumes • Peter Mumford, light design

The fact that the Berliner Philharmoniker turn to Puccini – this beloved yet ostracized composer – is symbolic. Here is someone who was thought to be outmoded for a long time, but there is really so much more to be discovered about him and his work. The tale of one, who becomes a model but remains a girl, is very contemporary.
