Roth's double dates in Berlin!

François-Xavier Roth conducts two series of two concerts with two leading ensembles in Berlin this week. 

In his debut with the Staatskapelle Berlin, he leads a programme of Dukas, Bartók's second Violin Concerto (with Renaud Capuçon) and Stravinsky's Firebird at both the Philharmonie and Konzerthaus.

Making a return visit to the Boulez Ensemble, he gives two lecture-concerts in each of which Pierre Boulez' Répons will be performed twice in the Frank Gehry-designed Boulezsaal.
