Our concert highlights in May 2023
RundfunkchorLounge »Die Kunst des Alleinseins«Rundfunkchor Berlin
What does being alone do to you? Do you get depressed – or creative – or both? In any case, being alone is not the same as being lonely. In a fascinating RundfunkchorLounge, these and similar questions that may well concern all of us since the pandemic are raised and discussed – musically and in conversation. The venue is the magnificent Heimathafen Neukölln; the host for the evening will be Boussa Thiam.
Vladimir Jurowski & Truls MørkRundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin Lutosławski, Shostakovich, Prokofiev
At this concert, Vladimir Jurowski, the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and cellist Truls Mørk will shift towards the east: in addition to the Symphonic Variations by Polish Witold Lutosławski, Shostakovich's Concerto No. 2 und Prokofiev's Third Symphony will be performed: a fascinating combination that promises a magnificent evening in the Philharmonic Hall Berlin!
Manfred HoneckDeutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin Beethoven, Strauss
Between creative unshackling and a command of form - that's the range the two pieces span that the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin will perform for you, conducted by Manfred Honeck. Beethoven's Violin Concerto is formal mastery set to music, while Strauss's Suite from "Elektra" constitutes perhaps the wildest spawn of Dionysian energy in the entire history of German opera.
Fabien GabelDeutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin Ravel, Poulenc, Strauss, Schmitt
Salome's wild, nefarious sensuousness, colliding with Christian faith, is quite simply excellent material for an opera. Or at least that was Richard Strauss's view. The Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin will perform the "Dance of the Seven Veils" from his opera "Salome". Florent Schmitt's suite "La tragédie de Salomé" is committed to the same idea. Conductor Fabien Gabel will include two rather more gracious works beside them by Ravel and Poulenc.
Chamber concert KühlhausBeethoven, Eisler, Mozart
In the extraordinary industrial ambiente of the Kühlhaus, Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin's ensembles perform chamber music concerts for you with small, select instrumental line-ups. The concerts are dedicated to composers old and new, and there'll always be a certain something, a little surprise, a wink in store for you.
