Based in Berlin, the Berlin Philharmonic is an orchestra founded in 1882. Located in the Kulturforum area, Philharmonie is the primary concert venue where the orchestra plays. Numerous chamber music ensembles are supported by the orchestra as well. Berlin Philharmonic was ranked third on the list of "top ten European Orchestras" in 2006. The voting was collectively done by ten of the European media outlets. Two years later, in 2008, the orchestra was regarded as 'world's second best orchestra' as per a survey arranged by Gramophone, a British magazine.
Sir Simon Rattle has been the principal conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) since 2002. This English conductor gained meteoric rise and international dominance during the era of eighties and nineties. He emerged as the conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and then moved to BPO. The first time Simon conducted with the BPO was back in 1987 when he performed in Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 6. As principal conductor, Rattle presented his premiere show with leading acts of Thomas Adès' Asyla and Mahler's Symphony No. 5. This performance resulted in rave reviews which gained global attention from the press.
The Symphonic Dances, Op. 45, is basically a summary of Sergei Rachmaninoff's musical compositions. It is a three movement orchestral suite which was completed in 1940. This was the last thing that Rachmaninoff worked on. This piece is a reflection of his later style focusing on individual instrumental tone colors which are consistent throughout. This is clearly highlighted in the opening dance where the alto saxophone is used. The Dances take him back to the time to the Russia he knew existed. It also summarized the enduring fascination he had with ecclesiastical chants. The opening of Symphonic Dances is based on the theme of his First Symphony which is a derivative of Russian church music. The finale comprises of quotes from his All-Night Vigil including the chant "Blessed be the Lord" as well as the Dies Irae.
Provided the repertoire of violin concerts, Max Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, Op. 26, is categorized among the famous ones. This is by far the most renowned composition of Bruch which is recorded and performed by numerous violinists. Anne-Sophie Mutter will be performing it at the Night Gala hosted by the Carnegie Hall. With the support of Herbert von Karajan, this German violinist has created a very strong reputation. She has mastered contemporary music with numerous compositions including Krzysztof Penderecki, André Previn, Henri Dutilleux, Sofia Gubaidulina, Wolfgang Rihm and Witold Lutoslawski.
The Firebird is the work of Igor Stravinsky, the Russian composer. It is the first project that Stravinsky worked on. The Firebird is basically an orchestral concert as well as a ballet. Choreographed by Michel Fokine, the composition was written for the Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes Company. Taken from Russian folk tales, the ballet portrays the story of a magical glowing bird that may be a blessing as well as a curse for its owner. The debut performance was shown in 1910 which gained meteoric success and popularity among the critics and the audience. This will be the closing performance for the Night Gala.
