    She was the first woman on the podium of the Bayreuth Festival: the Ukrainian conductor Oksana Lyniv made her acclaimed debut at the world-renowned festival in summer of 2021. She learned her trade thoroughly, including as Kirill Petrenko’s assistant at the Bavarian State Opera. She presents in this Late Night concert together with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker works by Igor Stravinsky.

    The history of film music would be different without John Williams. Cinema classics like Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Harry Potter are inextricably linked with his musical style. His soundtracks captivate listeners with thrilling, moving themes and a tremendous range of atmospheres and sounds. John Williams makes his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker at this concert, conducting several of his most famous scores.

    In this concert, Tugan Sokhiev presents three melodious discoveries: Ernest Chausson’s Symphony in B flat major, which the orchestra last performed in 1975. This work features shimmering French colours and a great lamento influenced by Wagner. Other rarities are Rimsky-Korsakov’s folklike overture to the opera The Tsar’s Bride and the First Piano Concerto by the 17-year-old Sergei Rachmaninov, with Nikolai Lugansky as soloist.

    A century separated Olivier Messiaen and Anton Bruckner, but they had a lot in common: both were among the leading organists of their time, and both were deeply rooted in the Catholic faith. Zubin Mehta combines Messiaen’s Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum, a memorial to the dead of both world wars, with Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony. It is not only the summation of the Austrian composer’s work but also a personal farewell to this world.

    Hector Berlioz wrote countless love letters to actress Harriet Smithson – none were ever answered. The Symphonie fantastique became the composer’s outlet: the depiction of an extreme love drama in which the lover is murdered and the murderer is executed. The conductor of the spectacular score here is Daniel Barenboim. The programme also includes the flute concertos by Ferruccio Busoni and Jacques Ibert – captivating music which is dynamic, transparent and surprising. The soloist is Emmanuel Pahud, principal flute of the Berliner Philharmoniker.

    With this programme we commemorate Max Bruch, the 100th anniversary of whose death is remembered in 2020. Our 1st concertmaster, Noah Bendix-Balgley, is the soloist in this performance of Bruch’s First Violin Concerto with the Berliner Philharmoniker under the baton of Marek Janowski. With its yearning opening movement and sparkling finale, this work became the composer’s most popular work. The second part of the concert is dedicated to Johannes Brahms, a contemporary of Bruch. His Serenade No. 2 is characterised by the dark, warm sound typical of Brahms and is considered a milestone on the composer’s path to the symphony.

    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).

    In this concert, Kirill Petrenko made his last appearance with the Berliner Philharmoniker before taking up office as their chief conductor. First, soloist Patricia Kopatchinskaja showed how much virtuosity and expressive variety there is in Arnold Schoenberg’s Violin Concerto. Then came Tchaikovsky’s passionate Fifth Symphony in a performance full of power and dedication, “with a final passage like a casting out of devils .... The hall was completely breathless with enthusiasm and anticipation of what the future holds” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).

    Witold Lutosławski’s captivating Concerto for Orchestra combines the acerbic power of traditional Polish folk music with ingenious, pioneering construction. A charming contrast is formed by Johannes Brahms’ joyous Second Symphony, written during a holiday at the Wörthersee in which, according to the composer, “The melodies fly so thick here that you have to be careful not to step on one”. The conductor for this concert is Paavo Järvi.

    Henrik Albrecht’s children’s opera Ritter Parceval deals with the fascinating question of how a little boy becomes a knight. Especially when no-one believes he has what it takes to be a hero. Not his own overprotective mother Herzeloyde, the evil magician Klingsor or the virtuous Gurnemanz. In an end result that is moving, fascinating and daring, Albrecht sets the development of the young Parceval to music based on motifs from Richard Wagner.

To open his last season as chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, he presents Haydn’s oratorio The Creation, which combines groundbreaking harmonies, humorous tone painting and powerful choruses to form a spectacular cosmic panorama. The acclaimed performance showed all the musical facets of the work: its power as well as its delicate details.

    Two visions of death that could not be more different: The old Richard Strauss looks toward his death confidently and calmly with his Vier letzte Lieder – soloist: Camilla Nylund. In his Fourth Symphony, Peter Tchaikovsky reflects uneasily with high emotional pressure an existential crisis that drove him to attempt suicide. With this concert from May 2015, conductor Gianandrea Noseda made his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker.

    Both forward-looking and intelligible to all – that’s what music was intended to be in the Soviet Union. In this concert from December 2014 you can hear works that accord ingeniously with this challenging mission: Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto, with Vadim Gluzman as the soloist, and Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony, probably his most popular one. The conductor is Tugan Sokhiev, music director of Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre.

    In a joint benefit concert in April 2011, the Berliner Philharmoniker and the Staatskapelle Berlin commemorated the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl reactor disaster. This day of remembrance was all the more relevant given the nuclear disaster in Fukushima just a few weeks previously. The concert, with works by Dmitri Shostakovitch, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Tōru Takemitsu, was conducted by Andrey Boreyko.

    Shostakovitch’s 14th Symphony is a highly unusual work. With frugal musical forces, it takes death as its theme. It forgoes all pathos yet is all the more haunting because of this. In contrast, this concert with Neeme Järvi also includes Richard Stauss’s Don Juan and Tchaikovsky’s Francesca da Rimini, compositions which also deal with death, however in both cases it is combined with a highly luxurious orchestration.

As the main work of the evening, Andris Nelsons conducted Dmitri Shostakovitch’s Eighth Symphony – according to one review, a “sensational concert” and a “brilliant debut”. No less praise was there for Baiba Skride’s “simple and harmonious” interpretation as the soloist in Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto.
