The players have scheduled a free weekly concert:
The Philharmonie Berlin remains closed for the time being, but the Berliner Philharmoniker will continue to play digitally. As of now, the orchestra invites you to a concert programme every Saturday at 7pm in the Digital Concert Hall….
The Berlin Phil Series will be available exclusively in the Digital Concert Hall. The theme for the start of the series on Saturday, 18 April 2020, at 7pm Berlin time (1pm New York; 2am Tokyo (+1)), is France. Under the title “Vive la France” Emmanuel Pahud, flute, Amihai Grosz, viola, and Marie-Pierre Langlamet, harp, will play works by Jean-Philippe Rameau, Claude Debussy, Jacques Ibert and Maurice Ravel. The main work of the evening is a 2009 recording of Debussy’s La Mer under the direction of Claudio Abbado. The stream will be repeated on Sunday, 19 April 2020 at 1pm Berlin time (7am New York, 8pm Tokyo).
The following week, on 25 April 2020, Noah Bendix-Bagley, first concertmaster of the Berliner Philharmoniker, will present a programme entitled “An American in Berlin”. Chamber music pieces for violin and piano by George Gershwin, Amy Beach and John Corigliano are combined with orchestral works by American composers: the programme includes Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story, works by Charles Ives and John Adams – and even music from cartoons.
