The Berlin Philharmonic, Led by Kirill Petrenko, Performs the World Premiere of Andrew Norman's Sabina for String Orchestra

Oct. 01, 2020

Kirill Petrenko leads the Berlin Philharmonic in the world premiere performances of Andrew Norman's Sabina for string orchestra on October 29-31 and November 11-12. This new work is an arrangement for string orchestra of the last movement of Andrew Norman's The Companion Guide to Rome, a collection of pieces for violin, viola, and cello, which was named a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize in Music. Each movement in this cycle is a character study of a particular Roman church. The music is, at different times and in different ways, informed by the proportions of the buildings, the qualities of their surfaces, the patterns in their floors, the artwork on their walls, and the lives and legends of the saints whose names they bear. The title is drawn from the iconic midcentury guidebook to Rome by Georgina Masson.
