The Berlin Philharmonic Live Streams Orchestral Works by Kurt Weill All Month Long

Feb. 01, 2021

A new biennial festival kicks off this month at The Berlin Philharmonic — this season the orchestra celebrates the Golden Twenties in a series of performances that includes several of Kurt Weill’s orchestral works. Streamed live without an audience and available afterwards for viewing worldwide with a ticket or subscription, the festival will premiere the new critical edition of Symphonie in einem Satz [Symphony No. 1 (1921)], edited by James Holmes, recipient of the Kurt Weill Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award. After the Berlin premiere, the new performance materials will be available for rental. 

The Berlin Philharmonic and chief conductor Kirill Petrenko will present Symphonie in einem Satz on February 13, continuing performances of Weill works since ringing in 2020 with a celebrated New Year’s Eve concert, which featured Weill's Symphonic Nocturne from Lady in the Dark and several Weill songs sung by soprano Diana Damrau. Scholarship holders of the Karajan Academy and conductor Marie Jacquot will present Symphony No. 2 (1933/34) and Weill’s Violin Concerto, featuring violinist Kolja Blacher, on February 16. Rounding out the festival, members of the Berlin Philharmonic will present three Weill works on February 23: “Berlin im Licht-Song,” Kleine Dreigroschenmusik, and Suite panaméenne.
