    The new episode of the Berlin Phil series features fanfares, chorales and marches with brass players of the Berliner Philharmoniker and organist Sebastian Heidl. The selection includes works by Beethoven, Handel and Elgar as well as compositions from the distinguished French organ tradition. The charming combination of the church instrument with the colours of the symphony orchestra resounds at the end of the concert in the finale from Camille Saint-Saëns’s “Organ Symphony”. The conductor of the performance from the archive of the Digital Concert Hall was Zubin Mehta.

    This episode of the Berlin Phil Series is a musical portrait of the city of Vienna. The concert features newly recorded chamber music works by Mozart and Beethoven as well as archive recordings of orchestral songs by Franz Schubert and Hugo Wolf. The chamber musicians include the two principal clarinets of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Wenzel Fuchs and Andreas Ottensamer who as Austrians, will guarantee an authentic Viennese colour. Fuchs can be heard in Mozart’s famous clarinet quintet, and Ottensamer in Beethoven’s lively “Gassenhauer Trio”.

    Despite the corona crisis, the traditional European Concert was still able to take place almost 30 years after its inception. Members of the orchestra performed under the baton of chief conductor Kirill Petrenko in an otherwise empty Philharmonie. After works by Arvo Pärt, György Ligeti and Samuel Barber, Gustav Mahler’s Fourth Symphony was performed in a version for chamber orchestra with soprano Christiane Karg. “The Philharmoniker soloists exude dedication – and an inexhaustible world opens up in miniature” (Tagesspiegel).

    Music by American composers is on the programme for the second instalment of the Berlin Phil Series. In a range of chamber formations, Noah Bendix-Balgley, 1st concertmaster of the Berliner Philharmoniker, and other members of the orchestra play pieces by George Gershwin, John Cage, and the composer Amy Beach, among others. Symphonic dances from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story are heard under the baton of chief conductor Kirill Petrenko, and his predecessor Sir Simon Rattle inspires the orchestra to a spectacular performance of Scott Bradley’s soundtrack to a Tom and Jerry cartoon.

    In a new concert series in which members of the Berliner Philharmoniker perform chamber music in the Digital Concert Hall, Emmanuel Pahud, Amihai Grosz and Marie-Pierre Langlamet start things off with French music from Rameau to Debussy for flute, viola and harp. In this way, the musicians will be able to maintain contact with each other and with their audiences even during the time of the corona crisis. The programme closes with a recording from 2009 of Debussy’s composition La Mer, performed by the Berliner Philharmoniker under the baton of their former chief conductor Claudio Abbado.
