About the Event

Artistic expression, technical virtuosity and captivating charisma flow organically into one another in Emmanuel Pahud. At the age of just 22, the French‐Swiss musician became principal flutist of the Berlin Philharmonic under Claudio Abbado, a position he holds to this day.

Together with the dynamic Kammerakademie Potsdam under the direction of Antonello Manacorda, Emmanuel Pahud does the honors in his concert at the Philharmonie. A charming programmatic arc is drawn from Mozart's classically influenced first flute concerto to Mendelssohn Bartholdy's enchantingly playful 'Midsummer Night's Dream' overture and Beethoven's seventh symphony.

Flute: Emmanuel Pahud

Swiss‐French flutist Emmanuel Pahud is one of today's most exciting and adventurous musicians. He was born in Geneva in January 1970 and started his music studies at the age of six. He graduated in 1990 with the Premier Prix from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, after which he continued his studies with Aurele Nicolet.

Named 'Instrumentalist of the Year 1997' at the prestigious Victoires de la Musique award ceremony in Paris, Mr. Pahud has won first prize in many major International Music Competitions. He is also a laureate of the Yehudi Menuhin Foundation and of the International Tribune for Musicians of UNESCO. Mr. Pahud is the first solo flutist of the renowned Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in addition to his solo career. He performs on a Brannen 14k gold with a Sheridan headjoint.  His versatility in music styles over the years has “signaled the arrival of a new master flautist.” (The Guardian).
