Theatrical and expressive on the podium, Kirill Petrenko is an extraordinary musician and orchestra leader. He brings out the best in his players, and has earned resounding ovations as the music director at two of Europe’s most important houses, the Bavarian State Opera and the Berlin Philharmonic. An appearance by the mighty Berlin Philharmonic is always a landmark occasion; Maestro Petrenko’s Boston debut with the orchestra--in just his second season as Chief Conductor--promises to be a can’t-miss event.
