After the war, extensive concert tours took him all over Europe, where he played under famous conductors like Herbert von Karajan or Joseph Keilberth. In 1954 he played four concerts in Hamburg and Berlin under the conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler.

Both rehearsed and worked on the work together, but Furtwängler's death on 30 Nov. 1954 caused the tour to fail. Then-Bergh played this concert almost 4 years later, on 25 January 1958 in the concert hall of the Universität der Künste Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in a homage to Furtwängler. The conductor was Artur Rother.
