On a weekend in October 2020, the Berliner Philharmoniker focused on the work of female composers. Several works were premiered in three concerts, with the featured composers ranging from the now 94-year-old Betsy Jolas to up-and-coming artists such as Zeynep Gedizlioğlu and Milica Djordjević. In addition to members and ensembles of the Berliner Philharmoniker, the performers included notable guests such as the violinist Baiba Skride. Our concert clip, in which some female composers explain their works, presents the highlights of the short festival.
