On 23 August, Kirill Petrenko appears with the Berliner Philharmoniker for the first time as their chief conductor. You can experience this special evening live in cinemas and, at the same time, celebrate the opening of the new 2019/2020 season with the orchestra and conductor. In keeping with the festive occasion, the programme features one of the most representative works of classical music ever: Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, which takes the listener on a highly emotional journey through a wide range of musical forms before arriving at its euphoric finale with the famous Ode to Joy.
We are broadcasting the concert live in cinemas in the UK, Ireland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Germany and Switzerland.
