The Wooden Prince

  • Thu29March18:00 H

On young princes and stately kings.
Let’s join together and celebrate once again! With the different ensembles of the Berliner Philharmoniker and National Youth Orchestra of Germany. Each year the program is designed to offer something for every music lover. The concert will begin in a lighter vein with Vivaldi and Offenbach, before moving on to the highlight of the program, Bartók’s Wooden Prince – an impressionistic early work full of folk-like melodies and suffused with the composer’s admiration of Strauss and Wagner.
