Together against Corona
"We need more people to get vaccinated!" This is the mission which has lead to the formation of the largest anti-Corona initiative to date, 'Brands Against Corona', initiated by the German business community. Currently, more than 150 German companies and brands are already taking part and are calling out together to fight vaccination fatigue and make public life in Germany safe again.
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.

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.
