2021 New Year’s Eve Concert with Lahav Shani and Janine Jansen

Virtuosic, dance-like and dynamic: Lahav Shani, who stood in at short notice for an indisposed Kirill Petrenko, opened the 2021 New Year’s Eve Concert with Johann Strauss’s Fledermaus Overture before Janine Jansen presented Bruch’s First Violin Concerto. The way the Philharmoniker then “let Stravinsky’s wealth of timbres shimmer” in the Firebird was, according to Der Tagesspiegel, “simply phenomenal”. The spectacular programme concluded with Ravel’s La Valse and an encore.
