The new chief condcutor has picked the German soprano Marlis Petersen, with whom he has worked many times before in Munich.
She has only sung once before with the Berlin Philharmonic.
Marlis says: ‘The residency with the Berliner Philharmoniker is a great honour for me. At the same time it is a musical thank you from Kirill Petrenko for our previous work together. I’m very touched by that.’
Kirill says: nothing. We’ll have to get used to that.
