Kirill Petrenko recommends

Concert recordings and films from the Digital Concert Hall

Exclusively for the audience of the Digital Concert Hall, Kirill Petrenko has selected concert recordings and documentaries from the video archive. But his selection is more than a simple playlist: it is a homage to the chief conductors of the Berliner Philharmoniker, from Wilhelm Furtwängler to Herbert von Karajan, Claudio Abbado and Sir Simon Rattle. In doing so, he pays tribute to his predecessors in recordings which are perhaps less well known to the general public today, but which show an even more multi-faceted image of the respective conductor. At the same time, Kirill Petrenko’s musical recommendations are a gesture of solidarity during this period without concerts. In our bonus video, the conductor explains his selection. Have fun listening and watching!
