Gala from Berlin 2021

Janine Jansen violin
Berliner Philharmoniker
Lahav Shani

The Berliner Philharmoniker and Lahav Shani ring in the new year virtuosic, dance-like, and full of dynamism. We start with the overture to Johann Straussʼ Fledermaus before star violinist Janine Jansen presents Max Bruch’s passionate Violin Concerto No. 1. The second part of the concert is dedicated to the world of ballet. We hear Stravinsky’s Firebird, a fascinating melange of Russian fairy tale and visionary energy, and Ravel’s La Valse, an intoxicatingly explosive vision of the Viennese waltz – which links us back to the beginning of the programme.

Repertoire

Johann Strauss: Die Fledermaus: Overture; Max Bruch: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra No. 1 in G minor, Op. 26; Fritz Kreisler Liebesleid (Love's Sorrow); Igor Stravinsky: The Firebird, Suite No. 2 (1919 version); Maurice Ravel La Valse
