Late Night

With Sir Simon Rattle and Music by Bach

Our Late-Night concerts are not for sleepyheads. When other concertgoers are on their way home, this is where things are just getting started: three times a season, the late-night events offer music after Philharmoniker concerts - with members of the orchestra, distinguished guests and unusual programmes. A concert series for night owls and the curious who want to immerse themselves in unknown soundscapes.

sales information


Sir Simon Rattle is a big fan of Johann Sebastian Bach. He showed this many times during his time as chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker with his acclaimed performances of Bach’s Passions. He dedicates this Late Night to the composer’s cantata works – together with Anna Prohaska, whose bright, clear soprano is ideal for Bach’s music, plus countertenor Rupert Enticknap and bass Jan Martiník.
