Celibidache Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra 1945

Historical context

The first concert of the Berliner Philharmoniker after the end of the Second World War on 29 August 1945, conducted by the young Sergiu Celibidache, marked an important new cultural beginning in the history of the orchestra and the city of Berlin. This concert not only symbolised the return to normality and cultural life after the devastating years of the war, but also represented a significant moment in the career of Celibidache, who would later become one of the most renowned conductors of the 20th century.

Sergiu Celibidache, only 33 years old at the time, stepped up as a conductor at a time of great uncertainty and destruction, but also at a time of new beginnings and hope. His interpretation and musical leadership helped the Berlin Philharmonic regain its tradition and excellence and re-establish itself as one of the world’s leading orchestras.

This concert is often seen as a symbolic act of reconstruction and artistic survival, a testament to the power of music to provide solace and inspiration even in the darkest of times.
