The other Petrenko gets a crack at Berlinmain
Zubin Mehta, out for a shoulder operation, has left two weeks of February concerts unfilled with the Berlin Philharmonic.
Bernard Haitink will take the first.
The second week goes to Petrenko – not Kirill, who is the incoming chief of the Berlin Phil, but the unrelated Vasily Petrenko, music director in Liverpool and Oslo.
This will be Vasily’s Berlin Phil debut.
