Askonas Holt’s relationship with the legendary Berliner Philharmoniker has spanned decades. We have managed many concert tours for the orchestra in Europe and Asia, including numerous visits to London, under the batons of Sir Simon Rattle, Bernard Haitink, Claudio Abbado, Herbert von Karajan and others.
Since Sir Simon Rattle’s appointment as Music Director of the Berliner Philharmoniker in 2002, Askonas Holt has arranged concerts in cities as diverse as London, Rome, Moscow, Beijing, Taipei and Tokyo. In 2015 the Berliner Philharmoniker celebrated Sir Simon Rattle’s 60th birthday in style with a week-long London residency, performing a Sibelius Symphony Cycle at the Barbican Hall and Mahler and Helmut Lachenmann at the Royal Festival Hall. Future tours include an extensive tour of Asia in November 2017, and Sir Simon’s final London performances with the Berliner Philharmoniker at the Royal Festival Hall in May 2018.
