Our concert highlights in March 2024
Mensch, Musik! #8 – „Ver Führung“Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin
With their "Mensch, Musik!" series, the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin has set itself the goal of making it possible for those who until now have had only little contact with classical music to experience it. This concert is about the temptations of management, from the appeal of leadership courses to politics to being led when dancing. What's the attraction, and what dangers lurk in the abyss?
Petr Popelka & Pierre-Laurent AimardRundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin Schönberg, Mahler
Schönberg's Piano Concerto was composed in the time shortly before the end of the Second World War. In the United Kingdom, the work was played one day before Germany's capitulation. On this evening in the Philharmonic Hall, the work will be played beside Mahler's Symphony No. 1, which was premiered half a century earlier, creating a rift in the audience: a rift between "Mahler lovers and Mahler haters" (Karl Kraus).
Greters & von der DamerauDeutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin Einfelde, Wagner, Bruckner
Conducted by the young Latvian conductor Aivis Greters, and together with the Hamburg mezzo-soprano Okka von der Damerau, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin will perform a musical triptych of Wagner, Bruckner and Maija Einfelde in the Philharmonie. It promises to be an exciting and varied concert!
Additional dates16 Mar 20:00 Nikolaisaal Potsdam
Geniale Geschwister – Fanny & FelixRIAS KammerchorKammerakademie Potsdam Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Hensel
Jointly with the Kammerakademie Potsdam, the RIAS Kammerchor Berlin will dedicate an evening to the siblings Fanny Hensel and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. Fanny's "Hiob" was meant for her husband; its instrumental line-up suggests, however, that a performance in the public arena was planned. Such a performance actually happened, however, only in 1990—an indication of marginalisation. Before that, you can hear two psalms by her brother Felix from "Da Israel aus Ägypten zog".
Robin Ticciati & Kirill GersteinDeutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin Boulanger, Rachmaninow, Ravel
Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 1 still reflects the influence of his idols. Nevertheless, his own musical language is already clearly apparent. After the concert, conductor Robin Ticciati and pianist Kirill Gerstein will speak about this grandiose work, which the composer fundamentally revised shortly before emigrating to the US.
Sir Andrew Davis & Deniz UzunRundfunk-Sinfonieorchester BerlinRundfunkchor Berlin Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Stravinsky
The Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and the Rundfunkchor Berlin will honour each other in the Konzerthaus by performing jointly: a concert evening with works by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and Igor Stravinsky promises a very particular impact, providing unforgettable musical moments.
Chamber concert Studio 14Bacewicz, Hensel-Mendelssohn
Christmas needn't be just "Joy to the World" and "O Come, All Ye Faithful". That will be demonstrated by musicians of the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin in a remarkably dulcet way with Leoš Janáček's String Quartet No. 1, inspired by Tolstoy's novella "The Kreutzer Sonata", which in turn revolves around Beethoven's Violin Sonata. Then you will hear Paul Hindemith's quintet for clarinet, two violins, viola and cello, rounding off the musical evening beautifully.
Tarmo Peltokoski & Jan LisieckiDeutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin Saariaho, Prokofiev, Sibelius
The two Finnish composers Jean Sibelius and the late Kaija Saariaho address old legends that tell of patriarchal power structures in their works. Between the two, Rachmaninoff's grand Piano Concerto No. 2 will surge through the Philharmonie Berlin.
