5 December

Stéphane Denève to stand in for Marin Alsop

Marin Alsop has unfortunately had to cancel her participation in the DSO concert on 5 December 2021 due to the current pandemic situation. We are very pleased that Stéphane Denève has agreed to take over the conducting. Instead of Samuel Barber's First Symphony, the Second Orchestral Suite from the ballet 'Bacchus et Ariane' by Albert Roussel will be heard. The rest of the programme remains unchanged.

Beginning November 27

Concerts under 2G-Plus conditions

Due to the amended Infection Protection Ordinance of the Berlin Senate, the 2G-Plus rule will apply to cultural events from Saturday, 27 November 2021 until further notice. Accordingly, concert attendance is only possible with a digitally verifiable proof of vaccination or convalescence. A mask must also be worn during the concert.

Lars Vogt standing in for Mitsuko Uchida

Mitsuko Uchida has unfortunately had to cancel her participation in the DSO concerts at the Berlin Philharmonie on 12 and 13 November 2021 due to illness. We are delighted that Lars Vogt has agreed to take on the solo part in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4. The programme thus remains unchanged.
