"The rigorous maestro as magician"

" … fully concentrated on the orchestra, he expects that the musicians unfold their art independently", wrote Sybill Mahlke (Berliner Tagesspiegel) about Dimitri Kitaenko's recent concerts with the Konzerthausorchester  Berlin, whose First Guest conductor he has been since 2012. More than 40 highly acclaimed concerts in Berlin and abroad have followed since then and the mutual confidence as well as a common musical understanding have grown continuously.

The program comprised 'La création du monde' by Darius Milhaud, Prokofiev's Seventh Symphony as well as Modest  Mussorgsky's Pictures of an exhibition in the orchestral version by Maurice Ravel: "Sounds and nuances indicate (...) that the rigorous maestro can be a magician".
