Since the grandiose season opening with Kirill Petrenko, music fans have had to wait a while for the new chief conductor to return to the conductor’s desk of the Berliner Philharmoniker. But the waiting is almost over! At the turn of the year and in the first few months of the new year, Kirill Petrenko and the Philharmoniker are embarking on a series of exciting projects, starting with the New Year’s Eve programme, in which he presents a whole new musical side of himself, conducting captivating melodies from musicals and Broadway. The guest star is the soprano Diana Damrau, who makes her debut with the orchestra.

Exciting concerts, grand opera

A further three concert programmes follow in January and February: in addition to well-known works such as Ludwig van Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto (soloist: Daniel Barenboim), Gustav Mahler’s Sixth Symphony, Igor Stravinsky’s Symphony in Three Movements and Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, they also include less well-known pieces by Josef Suk and Bernd Alois Zimmermann, two composers whose works are close to the chief conductor’s heart. Kirill Petrenko also presents grand opera this season: At the Easter Festival in Baden-Baden and in concert in Berlin, Kirill Petrenko and the Berliner Philharmoniker perform Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio. The title role will be sung by Marlis Petersen, this season’s artist in residence. What does the soprano love about the character of Leonore? “I like the genuineness of this exceedingly human woman who Beethoven clearly and powerfully set to music.”
