    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.

    Simon Rattle is one of the outstanding Haydn conductors of our time. 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 excellent ensemble of soloists includes tenor Mark Padmore – the orchestra’s Artist in Residence this season.

    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.

    The celebrations for the 25th anniversary of the Chamber Music Hall of the Philharmonie in Berlin had many highlights. One of which was undoubtedly an appearance by Isabel Karajan, eldest daughter of Herbert von Karajan. She has made an outstanding name for herself as an actress and gave a demonstration of her skills and versatility for this anniversary as the narrator in Stravinsky’s Histoire du soldat.

    Concert to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster

    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.

    Neeme Järvi conduct Strauss’s “Don Juan” and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 14

    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.

    With two debuts in one evening, this concert from October 2010 had the up-and-coming generation of musicians at its heart. 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.

    Chopin’s Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2 with Daniel Barenboim und Asher Fisch

    The subtle yet extravagant outpourings of beauty of his music have made Frédéric Chopin perhaps the most popular piano composer of all. In this recording from 2009, Daniel Barenboim is the soloist in both of Chopin’s piano concertos: critics praised the performance for the “magic of the unrepeatable moment”. The concert is conducted by Asher Fisch.
