Kirill Petrenko elected new chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker


During an orchestra assembly last Sunday Kirill Petrenko was elected by a large majority of the members of the Berliner Philharmoniker as the Chief Conductor Designate of the orchestra and Artistic Director of the Berliner Philharmoniker Foundation. He succeeds Sir Simon Rattle, who will leave the orchestra in August of 2018.

Kirill Petrenko, currently music director of the Bavarian State Opera, said: “Words cannot express my feelings – everything from euphoria and great joy to awe and disbelief. I am aware of the responsibility and high expectations of me, and I will do everything in my power to be a worthy conductor of this outstanding orchestra. Above all, however, I hope for many moments of artistic happiness in our music-making together which will reward our hard work and fill our lives as artists with meaning.”

In the Digital Concert Hall you can get an impression of Kirill Petrenko’s work with the Berliner Philharmoniker in two concert recordings. We would especially recommend the related interviews with the conductor.

Kirill Petrenko, Conductor


Kirill Petrenko was born in 1972 in the Russian city of Omsk and studied piano at the Music Academy there. At the age of 11 he made his first public appearance as piano soloist with that city’s symphony orchestra. In 1990 the family (his father a violinist and his mother an instructor of musicology) moved to the Austrian State of Vorarlberg, where his father assumed a position as an orchestral musician and music teacher. Petrenko initially continued his studies in Feldkirch and then moved on to learn conducting in the class taught by Uros Lutovic at the Music University in Vienna, where he graduated in 1991. A first engagement took him in the autumn of 1997 as assistant and rehearsal accompanist to the Vienna Volksoper.

From 1999 to 2002 Kirill Petrenko served as General Music Director at the theatre in Meiningen, making his début there with Schostakovich’s Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk while also taking the helm for premières of Der Rosenkavalier, Rigoletto, Prodaná nevěsta (The Bartered Bride), Peter Grimes, Così fan tutte and La traviata. First and foremost, however, he attracted great international attention in 2000 with Der Ring des Nibelungen in a production directed by Christine Mielitz and designed by Alfred Hrdlicka.


From 2002 to 2007, Kirill Petrenko was General Music Director at the Komische Oper in Berlin. Among the productions on which Petrenko left a decisive imprint during those five years included: Prodaná nevěsta, (production by Andreas Homoki), Don Giovanni (Peter Konwitschny), Le nozze di Figaro (Barrie Kosky), Così fan tutte (Peter Konwitschny), Die Entführung aus dem Serail (Calixto Bleito), Jenůfa (Willy Decker), Der Rosenkavalier (Andreas Homoki), Peter Grimes (Katja Czellnik), Evgeny Onegin (Andreas Homoki), Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny (Andreas Homoki) and Das Land des Lächelns (The Land of Smiles)  (Peter Konwitschny).

Parallel to his positions in Meiningan and Berlin, his international career also rapidly developed. Important débuts brought him  in 2000 to the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino (Evgeny Onegin), in 2001 to the Vienna State Opera (Die Zauberflöte), and the Semperoper in Dresden (Lady Macbeth of Mtsenst, in 2001 to the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona (Pique Dame), the Opéra National de Paris (Don Giovanni), the Royal Opera House Covent Garden (Madama Butterfly), the Bavarian State Opera (Pique Dame) and the Metropolitan Opera House in New York (Die lustige Witwe [The Merry Widow]), and in 2005 to the Opera Frankfurt (Khovanshchina) to name but the most significant houses. From 2006 to 2008 he joined forces with Peter Stein to crate a cycle of Pushkin operas at the Opéra de Lyon, which was performed for the first time in its entirety in the spring of 2010.

Since his departure from the Komische Oper in July of 2007, Kirill Petrenko has worked as a guest conductor. The most important venues of this activity were appearances at the Metropolitan in New York (Die Zauberflöte and Ariadne auf Naxos), the Royal Opera House Covent Garden (A Kékszakállu herceg vára [Duke Bluebeard’s Castle]/Erwartung, Der Rosenkavalier) and the Theater an der Wien in Vienna, where he made his first appearance in 2004 conducting Smetana’s Dalibor, returning there in 2007 for Janáček’s Kat’a Kavanova (directed by Keith Warner), then finally conducting Richard Strauss’s Intermezzo there in 2008. In 2009 he came to the Bavarian State Opera (new production of Jenůfa) and the Opera Frankfurt (new production: Palestrina).

Among the most important orchestras Petrenko has conducted to date are the Berlin Philharmonic, the Staatskapelle Dresden, the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, the Bavarian State Orchestra, the Orchestra of the WDR in Cologne, the NDR Symphony Orchestra in Hamburg, the Museum Orchestra in Frankfurt, the Radio Symphony Orchestra of Vienna, the Vienna Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra, and the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra.

During the current season, Kirill Petrenko will mount the podiums of the Orchestra dell’Academia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome and the Israel Philharmonic for the first time, as well as returning to the Berlin Philharmonic and the Vienna Symphony. Operatic productions he will conduct include Tosca in Frankfurt, Fidelio at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and Tristan und Isolde in Lyon and at the Ruhrtriennale.

Kirill Petrenko began his tenure as general music director of the Bayerische Staatsoper on 1 September 2013. During his first two seasons he conducted the premieres of Die Frau ohne Schatten (Richard Strauss), La clemenza di Tito (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) and Die Soldaten (Bernd Alois Zimmermann), Lucia di Lammermoor (Gaetano Donizetti) and the revival of Der Ring des Nibelungen, followed by Alban Berg’s Lulu in May 2015. During the 2015/16 season he will conduct new productions of South Pole (Miroslav Srnka, world premiere) and Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (Richard Wagner).

上一任Sir Simon Rattle也是呼聲好高, 可就不是明星/領導人型.
...Furtwangler, Karajan, Abbado, Simon Rattle...其實在全球化下, BPO除了有名氣外, 吸引力大不如前.
