Berlin Philharmonic takes substitute on tour

The soprano Genia Kühmeier has pulled out of the Berlin Phil’s season-opening concert tomorrow and its tour to Salzburg, Lucerne and Paris. She’s unwell.

Her last-minute replacement in Haydn’s Creation is the young French soprano Elsa Dreisig.

Rattle conducts.

    • Correct, indeed. During the 2017/18 season Simon Rattle will hold two postions: chief conductor and artistic director at the Berliner Philharmoniker and music director at the London Symphony Orchestra.

    • Planning to end a position at the end of a season does not make one an ex-MD. Norman is just trying to give cheap digs at a conductor he constantly tries to belittle. Hint: it hasn’t been working.

  • I’ve been listening to this opening performance now. I’d call it an success in every part.

    And Elsa Dreisig was absolutely fantastic to listen to !!
    A natural born talent. What a voice…
