Andris Nelsons and Baiba Skride make their debuts with the Berliner Philharmoniker

With two debuts in one evening, this concert had the up-and-coming generation of musicians at its heart. As the main work of the evening, Andris Nelsons conducted Dmitri Shostakovitch’s Eighth Symphony – according to one review, a “sensational concert” and a “brilliant debut”. There was no less praise for violinist Baiba Skride, whose performance of Berg’s Violin Concerto was “simply brilliant”.
