Information about the programme

The popular “Watch This Space” series will kick off the new season with a tribute to the Twenties. It was an age of vibrant diversity in society and the arts: radio was born, and music faced a rich amalgam of contrasting currents, from the avant-garde to neoclassicism and jazz. Together with artist-in-residence Kirill Gerstein, the young German-Japanese conductor Erina Yashima will tackle the music of this exciting era. After studying at Berlin’s Hanns Eisler University of Music, she worked as an assistant conductor to such figures as Riccardo Muti in Chicago, Yannick Nézet-Seguin in Philadelphia and Zubin Mehta on the BRSO’s Asian tour of 2018. Beginning with the new season she will be the principal conductor of the Komische Oper in Berlin.
