The series of Monday Concerts - and thus also the 2019/20 season - ends with an evening under the musical direction of Kirill Petrenko, with the Bayerisches Staatsorchester and its Orchestra Academy and Jonas Kaufmann as soloist. The General Music Director of the Bayerische Staatsoper conducts a programme of four works, which are either arranged for a chamber ensemble or, even as an adaptation of older pieces and styles, written specifically for a chamber orchestra.
 
Arnold Schönberg's Chamber Symphony is - in the composer's own words - a turning point in his creative work and at the same time a highlight of his first stylistic period; it will be performed by the Orchestra Academy of the Bayerisches Staatsorchester. In his neo-classical Pulcinella Ballet, Igor Stravinsky puts on the mask of the commedia dell'arte, which he sometimes laps mischievously with sharpened sounds; Schönberg has condensed the orchestration of Gustav Mahler's Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen for a performance with chamber ensemble; and Richard Strauss revives the world of French classical music in his colorful music to Hugo von Hofmannsthal's arrangement of Molière's and Jean-Baptiste Lully's satirical ballet comedy Le bourgeois gentilhomme (The Bourgeois as a Nobleman), quoting not only the music of Lully but also composers of other eras, including Richard Wagner and, last but not least, himself.
