The Berlin Philharmonic have yet to announce when they will get a chance to play with their next music director, who was elected almost a year ago but doesn’t start til 2019. Apparently, the intensively private Kirill Petrenko, 44, is keeping them guessing.
That said, he has just announced a date at the Berlin Festival this September. Phew.
In the Philharmonie.
With the orchestra of the Bavarian State Opera.
No Schadenfreude, please.
