Deutsche Welle Festival: Cristian Macelaru and Igor Levit

8.00 Deutsche Welle Festival: Cristian Macelaru and Igor Levit

In mid-June 2020, the West German Radio Symphony Orchestra offered two concerts in one. The idea was to space out visitors in the Cologne Philharmonie, admit fewer of them, and spread the musical riches more equitably by having two one-hour performances on a single evening for different audiences.
