Juanjo Mena Returns to the Berlin Philharmonic in 2024/25

23 Apr 2024

Juanjo Mena will return to the Berlin Philharmonic in September 2024 to conduct a programme of French music, featuring Ravel’s complete ballet Daphnis et Chloé, Germaine Tailleferre’s Harp Concerto with the Orchestra’s Principal Harpist Marie-Pierre Langlamet, and Pierné’s Overture to Ramuntxo.

Mena is no stranger to the work of Gabriel Pierné, having recorded two discs of his music with the BBC Philharmonic. 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”.

Recent highlights include a successful pre-pandemic debut with the Berlin Philharmonic, featuring Ginastera’s Harp Concerto 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.
