About the Event

The concert to remember for days to come awaits you at Berlin's Philharmonie in a highly‐anticipated classical music program where Daniil Trifonov brings you the art of Franck, Ravel and Skrjabin.

Philharmonie Berlin


The Philharmonie is a concert hall opened in 1963 in West Berlin. It is considered the musical heart of the German capital, as well as the new urban centre after the fall of the infamous Berlin Wall. Its distinctive bright yellow exterior and unusual tent‐like shape quickly made it a city landmark. The surprising design and architecture were initially viewed negatively by many, but the Philharmonie is now considered a model for concert halls worldwide. The architect, Hans Scharoun, aimed to design a concert hall in which the focal point — the musicians on the concert platform — is equally visible from every seat, an aim that gave rise to the hall's unusual shape. Since its inauguration, the Berliner Philharmonie has hosted numerous concerts, often featuring acclaimed soloists and conductors.

Artists

Orchestra: Orchestre National de France

The Orchestre National de France, a Radio France formation, was the first permanent symphonic orchestra to be established in France. Désiré-Emile Inghelbrecht, its first accredited conductor, founded the Orchestra’s musical tradition that afforded pride of place to French music. After the war, Manuel Rosenthal, André Cluytens, Roger Désormière, Charles Munch, Maurice Le Roux and Jean Martinon perpetuated this tradition.
Sergiu Celibidache, who was the Orchestra’s first Guest Conductor from 1973 to 1975, was succeeded by Lorin Maazel who became its Music Director. From 1989 to 1998, Jeffrey Tate was the Principal Guest Conductor, while Charles Dutoit was Music Director from 1991 to 2001. Starting in September 2002, Kurt Masur took over the Orchestra’s musical direction for 6 seasons until Daniele Gatti took up this position in September 2008 while Masur became its Honorary Music Director.
