Berlin Philharmonic

(Berliner Philharmoniker)
Performance
 

Returning to Hill Auditorium for the first time since 2009, the Berlin Philharmonic and music director Simon Rattle embark on their last US tour together, bringing two concerts to Ann Arbor.

For the first program, they perform Pierre Boulez’s Éclat, a tribute to the late titan’s death earlier this year, paired with Mahler’s seldom-performed Symphony No. 7. The second program spotlights the remarkable path that music took in Vienna throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries. “Watching these players sweat their way through these symphonies, using every muscle to make them dramas of sight as well as sound…their commitment was palpable, their energy persuasive, their ability to communicate with one another superior.” (New York Times)

A Prelude Dinner, sponsored by Journeys International, precedes the performance. Reservations: 734.764.8489
