New Year’s Eve concert with Kirill Petrenko and Diana Damrau

For the first time, the new chief conductor Kirill Petrenko will be at the helm for the Berliner Philharmoniker’s New Year’s Eve concert – which at the same time reveals a new, vibrant facet to Petrenko’s repertoire. While German and Russian composers have been the main focus of his previous Philharmoniker concerts, this evening’s programme takes us on a musical journey to the USA: with dances from Bernstein’s West Side Story and Gershwin’s An American in Paris. The concert also features the star soprano Diana Damrau in songs from musicals by Stephen Sondheim, Kurt Weill and others.
