Concerts of the ROC at the Philharmonie Berlin

The first tones an audience ever heard in the great hall designed by Hans Scharoun were in 1963, with Herbert von Karajan conducting. Scharoun broke all the rules of classical music then in effect, positioning the ensemble in the centre, at the very heart of the space. In so doing, he also dared a social repositioning of classical music – a unique step at the time. This singularity had to be compensated acoustically, which occurred with the help of acoustician Lothar Cremer.

The result is a breathtaking sound space with a choir or orchestra in the middle, giving ensembles the opportunity to fully unfold musically and offer you concerts full of unforgettable moments of classical music, such as the ROC's Christmas and New Year's concerts.

Next to classical music giants like Mozart, Beethoven or Rachmaninoff, the ROC also perform younger artists such as Jelena Firssowa at their concerts in the Philharmonie. That promises extremely diverse programmes, whose common denominator is always the concerts' superior quality.
