The Principal Conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Kirill Petrenko.

The years following the Second World War were a fascinating artistic period whose innovative concepts are worth rediscovering. In post-war Germany, the music scene strove for a fundamentally new beginning. New concepts and innovative formats emerged with a great joy in artistic experimentation. This year's Berlin Philharmonic Biennale is dedicated to the experimental music from this post-war era and especially to the composer György Ligeti, whose 100th birthday is coming up on May 28, 2023.
