Pianist in residence” (Series O, 5 concerts)

Following Lars Vogt, Yefim Bronfman will be the second Guest Pianist of the Berliner Philharmoniker. Thanks to his exceptional technique and powerful gift of lyrical expression, Bronfman is celebrated today as one of the leading pianists of his generation. Born in Tashkent in 1958, he emigrated to Israel with his family at the age of fifteen, becoming a US citizen in 1989. Among his teachers were Arie Vardi in Israel, and Rudolf Firkusný, Leon Fleisher and Rudolf Serkin in the USA. In 1975, Yefim Bronfman launched his world-wide career in Montreal under Zubin Mehta. His debut with the New York Philharmonic followed three years later. Since then, Bronfman has played with many internationally renowned orchestras under various leading conductors. Winner of the prestigious Avery Fischer Prize (1991), Bronfman has established chamber music partnerships with, among others, Shlomo Mintz, Lynn Harrell, Joshua Bell, and the Emerson, Cleveland, Guarneri and Juilliard Quartets. Since his 1983 debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker, he has returned as a frequent guest.

300 years of the Clarinet (Series V, 3 Concerts) NEW

The clarinet was invented 300 years ago. Later, Mozart would rave about its extended range, composing his Clarinet Concert in A Major, one of the loveliest works in the genre. Guided by the theme “Faszination Klarinette,” the Berliner Philharmoniker is collaborating with the Musical Instruments Museum of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation. Together with colleagues from the orchestra and guests, the clarinetists of the Berliner Philharmoniker - Karl-Heinz Steffens, Wenzel Fuchs, Walter Seyfarth and Manfred Preis - will perform works by Mozart, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Stravinsky, Webern, Shaw and Messiaen. Between September 30, 2004 and February 28, 2005, the Museum of Musical Instruments will host the exhibition “Faszination Klarinette”, to be accompanied by a comprehensive catalog. Concerts, lectures and symposia will enhance this special exhibit.

Octet and more (Series Q, 4 concerts) NEW

Incidentally, the following series will continue: the Philharmonic Salon (2 events), Quartetto (5 concerts), 4 x Piano. In addition, there are 6 special concerts, 5 with guest performers in the Chamber Music Hall, and 1 concert with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker in the Church of St. Mary.

Sir Simon Rattle

Sir Simon Rattle became Chief Conductor and Music Director of the Berliner Philharmoniker at the beginning of the 2002/2003 season.

Born in Liverpool in l955, Simon Rattle studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London. In l974 he won first prize in the John Player International Conducting Competition and became Assistant Conductor of the Bournemouth Symphony and Sinfonietta. He subsequently held a number of guest titles including Principal Guest Conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic.
In 1980 he became Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, then Music Director from September l990 until August 1998. Since October 1992, he has been Principal Guest Conductor of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE) and is also Artistic Adviser of the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.
In 1979 he made his North American debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and was their Principal Guest Conductor from 1981 until 1994, also appearing with the Cleveland Orchestra and the Chicago, San Francisco, Toronto and Boston Symphony Orchestras. He made his New York debut in l985 with the LA Philharmonic and next appeared there with the CBSO in 1988. The same year included his US opera debut (Wozzeck) with Los Angeles Opera. His 1977 Glyndebourne debut has been followed by many productions with The London Philharmonic and, more recently, with the OAE. He made his English National Opera debut in 1985 (Katya Kabanova) and his Royal Opera House debut in 1990.
An exclusive EMI artist for many years, Simon Rattle has made over sixty recordings, and has gained many prestigious international awards. Most recently, EMI has released a set of live recordings of the Beethoven Symphonies with the Vienna Philharmonic. Recent seasons also included recordings of Bernstein Wonderful Town (Birmingham Contemporary Music Group), Szymanowski King Roger and Classic Ellington (both CBSO) and his first three acclaimed releases with the Berliner Philharmoniker, Liszt’s Faust Symphony, Schoenberg’s Gurrelieder, a live recording of Mahler’s Symphony no. 5 and Beethoven’s opera Fidelio. The next releases will be symphonic poems by Dvořák and Olivier Messiaen’s Éclairs sur l’Au-delà (2004) as well as Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana (2005).

The season 2004.2005 Simon Rattle leads the Berliner Philharmoniker in concerts at their home in Berlin, alongside touring in Europe an Japan. They will also appear at the Salzburg Easter Festival in 2005 with a new production of Benjamin Britten’s Peter Grimes.

An area of major importance in Simon Rattle’s new role in Berlin is to develop the Berliner Philharmoniker education project, Zukunft@BPhil. Through this initiative the Berliner Philharmoniker will broaden its mission to embrace the activities known as "education" in the Anglo-Saxon languages. The programme aims to open wide the doors of the Philharmonic Hall, approach new audiences, produce new materials via accessible information methods and communication forms, and finally provide a new perspective for their existing audience.
Simon Rattle has received many international awards in recognition of his outstanding contribution to music and his involvement in educational and community activities. In the 1987 New Year Honours, he was awarded the C.B.E. for his services to Music and in June 1994, he was made a Knight Bachelor in the Birthday Honours List. In September 1997 he was awarded the first ever BBC Music Magazine Outstanding Achievement Award and in November 1997 he was awarded the Royal Society of Arts Albert Medal. He received the Outstanding Achievement award at the 1999 South Bank Show Awards in honour of his 18 years work with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. In September 2001 he was awarded the Austrian “Cross of Honour for Science and the Arts” (first class).
