Conductor Thomas Sanderling is a long-standing supporter of composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg. In 2015, he even founded the “International Mieczysław Weinberg Society” which aims to promote the works of the often underestimated Polish-born composer. Not without success, either: Weinberg’s Symphony No. 22, his last symphony, will now see its German premiere in Berlin, performed by the Konzerthausorchester conducted by Sanderling himself. The impressive work initially remained unfinished after Weinberg’s death to then be orchestrated by Kirill Umansky in 2003. Something to look forward to!

The concert will be broadcast live by Deutschlandfunk Kultur from 20:03 h.
