Honorary member of the Berliner Philharmoniker

The Berliner Philharmoniker appoint Nikolaus Harnoncourt an honorary member.

Since Nikolaus Harnoncourt‘s debut at the conductor’s desk of the Berliner Philharmoniker in 1991, he and the orchestra have presented 29 programmes in 90 concerts together in Berlin and at the Easter Festival in Salzburg during the past 23 years. In a brief speech orchestra board member Peter Riegelbauer declared: “You have given us a new perspective on the works of the great masters of the 18th and 19th centuries. You have always aroused our curiosity about the stylistic realities beyond the scores. We are greatly indebted to you.” The most recent concerts by the Berliner Philharmoniker under Nikolaus Harnoncourt, with Ludwig van Beethoven’s C major Mass and Fifth Symphony, were presented at the Philharmonie in October 2011.
