Season opening 2018: Kirill Petrenko conducts Beethoven and Strauss

In a way, this concert looks ahead to a new era. One year before Kirill Petrenko took up his post as the Berliner Philharmoniker’s new chief conductor, he conducted the opening concert of the 2018/19 season. At the same time, he presented his interpretation of core works of the Philharmoniker’s repertoire: Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony and Richard Strauss’s tone poems Don Juan and Tod und Verklärung. “What was revealed in this great moment was more than the magic of a beginning. This union will bring forth great things” (Die Zeit).
