Deutsches SO Residency for George Benjamin

Deutsches SO Residency for George Benjamin

George Benjamin will be centre-stage in Berlin from October 2004 to May 2005, as he takes up the position of Composer in Residence to the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester.

Seven programmes across the DSO season will feature his work, three conducted by Music Director Kent Nagano, and three under the composer's own baton.

Coincidentally, during the January period the Berlin Philharmonic gives its first ever performance of a Benjamin work when David Robertson takes the baton to conduct Palimpsests on January 13, 14 and 15 2005.
