On Easter Sunday, ARTE will broadcast a concert with an audience of 1000 people from the Berlin Philharmonie, which was recorded as part of the pilot project "Testing" on March 20th in Berlin. In his first Easter concert as chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Kirill Petrenko conducts Tchaikovsky's "Fantasy Overture," "Romeo and Juliet," and the 2nd Symphony in E minor by Sergei Rachmaninow.

A goosebump moment: on March 20th, the Berliner Philharmoniker under principal conductor Kirill Petrenko gave a concert in front of an audience of 1,000 for the first time since the lockdown. The event was part of a pilot project initiated by the Berlin Senate, whose goal was to test the practicability of events in conjunction with SARS-CoV-2 antigen testing and, in perspective, to find a way to hold cultural events in front of an audience. ARTE will now broadcest this test concert on television on Easter Sunday, April 4th 2021 at 5 pm (CET).

After the broadcast, the concert will stay available online on ARTE Concert until 3 May.
