Season opening concert

Kirill Petrenko conducts Mahler’s Seventh Symphony

Kirill Petrenko appeared for the first time as a Mahler interpreter with the Berliner Philharmoniker at the beginning of 2020, conducting the Sixth Symphony. Critics and audience alike were thrilled by the “enthusiasm and virtually flawless precision” (The New York Times) of the performance. Now he opens the 2022/23 season with the Seventh Symphony. Mahler himself thought it was his “best work and preponderately cheerful in character”. Dark colours predominate over long stretches, however, nocturnal and eerie. Ambiguity and doubt are also mingled with the resounding joy of the finale.
