The inauguration of Kirill Petrenko as chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker is a special event. And it is being celebrated twice – with the season opening concert at the Philharmonie and the open-air concert at the Brandenburg Gate. For this joyful beginning of a new Philharmoniker era, no work could be more appropriate than Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with its magnificent final chorus of Schiller’s Ode to Joy.
Join us live!
Petrenko’s inaugural appearance with the Berliner Philharmoniker is also a media event where you can be part of the action in a variety of ways: in cinemas, on the radio, on television and in the Digital Concert Hall. The season-opening concert on 23 August will be broadcast in selected cinemas, on the radio (rbbKultur) in Germany and Europe, as well as in the Digital Concert Hall, the video platform of the Berliner Philharmoniker. In the Digital Concert Hall, you can also watch the open-air concert on 24 August, and it’s also live on the German tv channel rbb.
