About the Concert

Fairground hustle and bustle in St. Petersburg. A puppeteer enters the scene. Puppets come to life. A game of seduction and jealousy develops between Petrushka, a ballerina and a black servant, which ends fatally. That is actually the plot of the ballet "Petrushka", to which Igor Stravinsky created an enchanting score. With Russian folk dances, lots of movement and, at the end, the question: were they really just puppets telling us here about the tragedy of life? Saint-Saëns, on the other hand, takes us to the Orient with his last piano concerto. He composed it during his stay in Egypt and said himself that in the second movement one could hear echoes of a Nubian love song that he had heard from ships on the Nile. In this sense: bon voyage!
