Kirill Petrenko with the Israel Phil … and which soloist?main
At the Berlin Phil, Petrenko gets landed with headline soloists and sometimes has little say in who plays concertos.
But when guest conducting abroad he can choose his own…. and it’s a clue to his own personality and contemporaries to see who he picks.
In Israel next month, he will conduct Mozart K491 with the ex-Yugoslav pianist Tamara Stefanovich, 46, who is married to Pierre-Laurent Aimard. Not a big name, but an artist for cognoscenti.
