Outstanding reviews from both the Berliner Morgenpost & Der Tagesspiegel for Vasily's debut performances with the Berliner Philharmoniker last week.
With barely eight weeks notice he took over the podium from the injured Zubin Mehta and conducted the hugely demanding Schoenberg Violin Concerto (his first time conducting this work as well!).
Not to add any pressure of course but the violinist tasked with performing the piece was Michael Barenboim, son of the legendary Daniel.
No less than 30 music lovers and loyal followers of Vasily from Liverpool and the Northwest travelled to Berlin to attended the performance. During their stay they also enjoyed a new production premiere of Don Quixote with the Staatsballet Berlin and had dinner on the roof of the Reichstag.
