Due to the imminent measures taken by the federal and state governments, the Berliner Philharmoniker Foundation has to close both halls (Main Auditorium and Chamber Music Hall) until 31 December 2020. In addition to the Berliner Philharmoniker Foundation events, all guest events in both venues are affected. The Philharmonie’s daily guided tours and the free lunch concerts will also not take place during this time.

Invite the Berliner Philharmoniker to your home!

During the closure, the Berliner Philharmoniker will continue to play for you regularly – in the Digital Concert Hall, the orchestra’s virtual concert hall. On 5 December at 7:00 pm you can hear the debut of cellist Nicolas Altstaedt, who will perform Camille Saint-Saëns’s Cello Concerto, conducted by Alain Altinoglu. The programme also includes Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite and Bizet’s Symphony No. 1. You don’t have to miss the New Year’s Eve concert with Kirill Petrenko, either. It will be broadcast as a live stream in the Digital Concert Hall as well as on arte and Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (rbb).
