For the first time, the Berliner Philharmoniker‘s new chief conductor Kirill Petrenko will be at the helm for the traditional New Year’s Eve concert – which at the same time reveals a new, vibrant facet to Petrenko’s repertoire. The evening’s programme takes us on a musical journey to the USA and to catchy Broadway melodies: with dances from Bernstein’s “West Side Story” and Gershwin’s “An American in Paris”.
Star soprano Diana Damrau, performing with the Philharmoniker for the first time, will accompany Petrenko on his excursion into the field of musicals. She has, however, already worked with him a number of times and she raves about his conducting style: “He’s a magician!”

George Gershwin: An American in Paris, Leonard Bernstein: Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, and works by Richard Rodgers, Kurt Weill, Stephen Sondheim and Harold Arlen
