For the first time ever: Berliners can get to know the new chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Kirill Petrenko, at a free, open-air concert. The location is the Brandenburg Gate: an international symbol for overcoming conflicts and borders. Ludwig van Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, with its humanistic message of the he brotherhood of all men, breathes the same spirit.
