In the coming months, Russian operatic rarities conducted by Kirill Petrenko, an anniversary concert by the 12 Cellists, concerts by the Berliner Philharmoniker with Daniel Barenboim, Zubin Mehta, Semyon Bychkov, Andris Nelsons and Philippe Jordan, and many other highlights await you at the Philharmonie. We look forward to seeing you!
Kirill Petrenko conducts two Tchaikovsky operas
Kirill Petrenko has been named Conductor of the Year five times by Opernwelt magazine. With the Berliner Philharmoniker, too, he is devoting himself to musical theatre several times this season and will conduct two of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s stage works in the coming months: while in Mazeppa a love affair is shattered by intrigue and war, in Iolanta we are treated to a fairy-tale happy ending.
New Year’s Eve Concert of the Berliner Philharmoniker
The Berliner Philharmoniker and chief conductor Kirill Petrenko say farewell to 2021 with Viennese dance music of a somewhat different kind. Incidental music by Erich Wolfgang Korngold enriches a Shakespeare comedy with Viennese flair, Richard Strauss celebrates coffee-house culture in his ballet Schlagobers, and Maurice Ravel delivers an intoxicatingly explosive version of the Viennese waltz with La Valse.

Lang Lang plays Bach’s Goldberg Variations
For more than 20 years, pianist Lang Lang has studied Bach’s challenging work, drawing inspiration from Baroque music specialists such as the late Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Andreas Staier to develop his own personal interpretation of the piece. It was not until 2020 that Lang Lang considered himself ready enough to present his performance to the public – and in doing so, fulfilled a lifelong dream.
