... Concerts with an audience!
Be honest: haven’t you missed the rustling of a programme booklet two rows behind you? The obligatory noise of sweets being opened at every concert? Or the snoring of the person sitting next to you? When we start the new season a little earlier than usual on 21 August 2021 with our Welcome Back Week, we are also looking forward to the little things that really make a concert visit with an audience. Until further notice, 2000 people can fill the main auditorium, and the Chamber Music Hall is allowed to be fully occupied – an almost normal start to the season.

The pre-season programme: Welcome Back Week and concert at the Waldbühne with Kirill Petrenko
Before regular concerts resume, you can first look forward to our Welcome Back Week with a wide-ranging programme of jazz, chamber music and cross-genre concerts with well-known guests and members of the Berliner Philharmoniker. The highlight of the week will be the Welcome Back Concert at the Waldbühne with Kirill Petrenko, who conducts Schubert’s Great Symphony in C Major and the Overture to the opera Oberon by Carl Maria von Weber – the perfect Romantic programme for the idyllic setting of the Waldbühne.
After the season-opening concert, also under the direction of chief conductor Kirill Petrenko, the orchestra sets off on a small tour of Europe. The itinerary includes the Salzburg Festival, Lucerne and Paris. Following the tour, we can look forward to concerts with such distinguished guests as Jakub Hrůša, Andrew Watts, Tugan Sokhiev, Nikolai Lugansky, Oksana Lyniv, Herbert Blomstedt, Gustavo Gimeno, Augustin Hadelich, John Williams, Adam Fischer and Daniil Trifonov.
