Juanjo Mena volverá a dirigir la Filarmónica de Berlin en la temporada 24/25

April 2024

Juanjo Mena will return to the Berlin Philharmonic this coming September to conduct a programme of French music, featuring Ravel’s complete ballet Daphnis et Chloé. Also on the menu is Germaine Tailleferre’s Harp Concerto, for which the orchestra’s Principal Harpist Marie-Pierre Langlamet takes centre stage.

The concert opens with Pierné’s Overture to Ramuntxo. Juanjo Mena is no stranger to the work of Gabriel Pierné, having recorded two discs of his music with the BBC Philharmonic, about which Bryce Morrison from Gramophone said “Orchestral charm and craftsmanship revealed in a fine Philharmonic recital… For all those who delight in a wholly French grace and magic, this disc is a winner”.

Juanjo Mena makes this return after a successful pre-pandemic debut with the Berlin Philharmonic, featuring Ginastera’s Harp Concerto, also with Marie-Pierre Langlamet, and Manuel de Falla’s ballet The Three-Cornered Hat.

The concerts will take place on 26th, 27th and 28th September 2024 at the Berlin Philharmonie. More information can be found here.
