Christoph Eschenbach

Principal Conductor

"Christoph Eschenbach is a humanist and world citizen who, as a conductor, is distinguished not only by his enormous musicality but also by his ability to bring musicians from around the globe together in such a way that they enthusiastically follow his path along various eras of music history. Together with our audience, we are delighted to follow our new principal conductor and the Konzerthausorchester Berlin on this special journey."

Sebastian Nordmann

„Mich hat die besondere Geschichte des Konzerthausorchesters und seines Hauses mit ihren Höhen und Tiefen fasziniert, in der sich die Geschichte Berlins wider­spiegelt. Vom Künstlerischen wie vom Menschlichen war die Zusammenarbeit eine große Inspiration und ein Ansporn für meine Vorstellungen, wohin ich in den nächsten Jahren mit dem Orchester gelangen möchte.“

Focal areas in the 2019/20 season

For the festive season opening on 30 August 2019, the new principal conductor has chosen a formidable work, the unofficially named “Symphony of a Thousand” – Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 8. The piece opens his first season at Gendarmenmarkt, in which alongside Johannes Brahms, he will focus on 21st century works by Sofia Gubaidulina, Thomas Adès and a world premiere by Christian Mason.
