The former Berliner KammerOrchester was created 1943 by Hans von Benda and existed in this form until 1973. Since the reestablishment 1993 the Berliner KammerOrchester is conducted by the composer Roland Mell. The repertoire of the Berliner KammerOrchester covers works from the baroque to the present. Works of composers coming from Berlin are considered in a special way. The Berliner KammerOrchester consists of professional orchestra musicians and soloists. The members of the orchestra originate partially from the large Berlin symphony and opera orchestras and of freelance musicians. The orchestra has always put a focus on international cooperation.
