Easter Concert in Baden-Baden 2018- Simon Rattle, Elina Garanca & the Berliner Philharmoniker
In this Baden-Baden concert, Simon Rattle presents a sonorous snapshot of the European music scene in the early 20th century. It includes Richard Strauss’s self-confidently impressive Don Juan, sumptuous songs by Alban Berg, Ravel’s overwhelmingly sensual song cycle Shéhérazade and finally Stravinsky’s both groundbreaking and nostalgic Petrushka. The star guest is the Latvian mezzosoprano Elina Garanca.
Richard Strauss: Don Juan – Symphonic Poem, Op. 20
