Cancellation Sir Simon Rattle

09 May 2018

To Sir Simon Rattle’s great regret, he can no longer conduct the concerts with the Berliner Philharmoniker on 17, 18 and 19 May 2018 due to family reasons. Mikko Franck will stand in for him at the conductor’s desk.

Together with Sir Simon Rattle, the orchestra is very grateful to Mikko Franck for taking over the musical direction of a Philharmoniker concert at short notice, as he already did in January this year. The concert programme with Robert Schumann’s Paradise and the Peri and the remaining cast are unchanged.
