In a way, this concert looks ahead to a new era. One year before Kirill Petrenko takes up his post as the Berliner Philharmoniker’s new chief conductor, he will conduct the opening concert of the 2018/2019 season. At the same time, he presents his interpretation of core works of the Philharmoniker’s repertoire: Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony and Richard Strauss’ tone poems Don Juan and Tod und Verklärung.
