Join us for the start of the new season!

Welcome to the Philharmonie Berlin

Book your tickets for the beginning of a season that has it all. It begins with Gustav Mahler's Seventh Symphony conducted by Kirill Petrenko – a work that the composer himself described as his best. After a short break for a tour, you can look forward to discovering rarely performed works at the Philharmonie, such as Luigi Dallapiccola’s expressive short opera Il prigioniero, exciting artist debuts, the start of our new World Music series and the wide-ranging programme of Musikfest Berlin.

New concert series: World Music

The term “world music” stands for the diversity and beauty of the broadest range of folk music traditions – and for their creative dialogue. The 2022/23 season marks the start of a new series with which you can explore this cosmos.

The Kurdish singer Aynur has been one of the big names in world music for many years. The musician has said her goal is “to bring precious treasures of tradition to light”. She combines the sounds of Anatolia, which she has been familiar with since her earliest childhood, with a wide variety of influences, including jazz.

The cellist, singer and composer Abel Selaocoe is regarded as a particularly bright new star on the scene. He combines classical repertoire with music inspired by jazz and his South African homeland. His expressive singing, which he accompanies himself on the cello, is particularly impressive.
