Berlin Philharmonic under Antonio Pappano's baton
13 January, 2018
Sir Antonio Pappano is set to conduct the Berlin Philharmonic in the orchestra's first concert of the Digital Concert Hall series for 2018. It will be broadcasted live on 13 January, starting at 7.30pm for the Bulgarian audience. The admission for the event is free and viewers are expected to put their names down for seats at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 02/ 939 0114, the organisers of Goethe Institut - Bulgaria announced.
Sir Antonio Pappano, who is the music director of the Royal Opera House in London and the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, will reunite with the Berlin Philharmonic after a 12-year absence. His return will be celebrated with a diverse programme contrasting the delicate music of French composers Maurice Ravel and Henri Duparc with the powerful force emanating from the works of Russian composers Modest Mussorgsky and Alexander Scriabin. The evening's soloist is French soprano Veronique Gens.
In 2018, Goethe Institut - Bulgaria will continue its series of live broadcasts from the Berlin Philharmonic. Every month until the middle of the year, the institute will present “digital concerts” as well as live performances featuring musicians from Bulgaria and Germany.
