Our concert highlights in April 2023
Kent NaganoDeutsches Symphonie-Orchester BerlinAudi Jugendchorakademie Brahms
Kent Nagano, Music Director of the Hamburg State Opera and the Philharmonisches Staatsorchester, will conduct the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin in the Philharmonic Hall Berlin in a splendid evening full of classical music.
Salzburger Juwelen IRIAS KammerchorKonzerthausorchester Berlin Mozart
With some reluctance, after an otherwise unsuccessful search for employment, Mozart finally became court organist in Salzburg. This required that he compose sacred works: fortunately, one might say, since in the resulting compositions we can no longer detect any of his reluctance. The RIAS Kammerchor Berlin will demonstrate this together with soprano Nuria Rial, conducted by Iván Fischer at the Konzerthaus Berlin.
Vladimir Jurowski & Yefim BronfmanRundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin Beethoven, Firssowa, Shostakovich
Together with the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and pianist Yefim Bronfman, Vladimir Jurowski will perform Jelena Firssowa's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra – for the first time in Germany. In addition, you can hear Beethoven's Coriolan Overture to Collins's tragedy and Shostakovich's 4th Symphony, intended to constitute an archetype of the symphony in socialist realism – a high aim that Shostakovich pursued even at risk of his life.
The RIAS Kammerchor Berlin invites listeners to extraordinary concerts at unusual places in Berlin at its Forum Concerts: the Forum Concert on 21 April will take place at the Hamburger Bahnhof. The ambiente is sure to have its very own influence on the repertoire the choir is performing for you.
Mensch, Musik! #7 – Statt Land MeerRundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin Debussy, Penderecki, Fujikura, Nemtsov
This Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin concert series has a contrasting concept to the stereotype that classical music takes place in an ivory tower, showing just the opposite: music is for people! Music has an effect, music moves us, music explains. And music collaborates, for instance, with director Annika Haller or students and alumni of Berlin's "Catalyst" creative institute. On this evening, conducted by Roderick Cox, one of the works the RSB will perform is Debussy's "La Mer" – three symphonic sketches for large orchestra.
Ingo MetzmacherDeutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin Adams
Conductor Ingo Metzmacher exemplifies unusual programs: in addition to conducting "Casino", Anton Plate's new work, he will lead the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin through the intractable and challenging but also quite simply fantastic soundscapes of Max Reger's Piano Concerto in F minor and John Adams's "Harmonielehre", the result of a painstaking and prolonged development, which in its own way seems no less fantastic than Reger's composition.
