Kirill Petrenko conducts Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony at the Brandenburg Gate

For the first time ever: Berliners were introduced to Kirill Petrenko, the new chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, at an open-air concert. The scene was the Brandenburg Gate: an international symbol for overcoming differences and borders. With its humanistic message of the brotherhood of all mankind, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony breathes the same spirit.
