SOT, Annady, concertgoer: "I heard that he [Kirill Petrenko] is very special in his conducting that I'm really just excited to hear the Berlin Philharmonic since he has been there. I can recognise them by their sound again, because that's what they're saying is that he's doing is that you can recognise them by their sound again."

SCRIPT
The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra led by its new Russian-born chief conductor Kirill Petrenko performed Beethoven's Ninth symphony to tens of thousands of people in front of the Brandenburg gate in Berlin on Saturday.
47-year-old Petrenko was born in Siberia and moved to Austria with his parents when he was 18 years old. He became the Berlin Philharmonic's seventh principal conductor in its 137-year history.
The open air concert which is part of celebrations marking 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall was held a day after Petrenko's inaugural performance with the orchestra.
