About the Event
In this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of classical music at Berlin's treasured and world‐renowned Pierre Boulez Saal.
Founded in 1975, the Australian Chamber Orchestra is known not only for its innovative programmes that combine familiar and unexpected sound worlds, but also for its commitment to Australian music and regular commissions. The ensemble is now giving two concerts in the Pierre Boulez Hall. Alongside works by Bartók and Tchaikovsky and music by Polish composer Wojciech Kilar, the first evening's program offers a stirring juxtaposition: Australian Brett Dean pays tribute to the Renaissance master Gesualdo with the musical epitaph Carlo, whose madrigal Asciugate i begli occhi is heard in an arrangement for strings.
Pierre Boulez Saal
The Pierre Boulez Hall is the hall of the Barenboim‐Said Academy. Designed by Frank O. Geary, the hall opened in March 2017 in Berlin, Germany. The hall was named in tribute to French conductor and composer Pierre Boulez, a name suggested by the Argentinian‐Israeli pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim. Despite being essentially a chamber venue, the structure has a cuboid shape that can accommodate medium‐sized orchestras, and up to 682 visitors. Architect and musicians alike seek to offer a 360 degree perspective on music, combining styles, cultures and viewpoints in the space.
