2020 Europakonzert from the Philharmonie Berlin with Kirill Petrenko

Despite the corona crisis, the traditional Europakonzert 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).
