About the Event
Explore the beauty of Baroque music at Konzerthaus Berlin in Berlin, where masterworks from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart come to life in this incredible performance.
For the Mozart program, the konzerthaus Berlin welcomes the Artist in Residence, Augustin Hadelich, together with the Berliner Barock Solisten and Noah Bendix‐Balgley, First Concertmaster of the Berliner Philharmoniker, in the Great Hall. The Berliner Barock Solisten were founded in 1995 by Rainer Kussmaul, Raimar Orlovsky and members of the Berliner Philharmoniker, in collaboration with prominent musicians from the early music scene. Their concern: To present music of the 17th and 18th centuries on modern instruments, or on adapted historical instruments, artistically at the highest level. As the ensemble points out in its self‐presentation, the decision to use modern instruments in no way hinders the claim to approach a 'historical' performance practice.

The Konzerthaus Berlin is a concert hall situated on the Gendarmenmarkt, the most beautiful square in the city. Built in 1821, the structure initially served as a theater. Severely damaged in the Second World War, it was rebuilt as a concert hall in 1977, with a neoclassical interior, and changed its name to reflect its new function in 1994. Consistently numbered among the top five concert halls in the world, the Konzerthaus hosts around 500 performances every year, ranging from symphony and chamber concerts featuring international stars to new music and children's concerts.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Perhaps the most important composer of all time, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was an Austrian composer of the late 18th century. Born in 1756 in Salzburg, he showed prodigious musical talent from childhood. Beginning at five years of age, he composed more than 600 works, including concertos, symphonies, religious works and operas before his premature death at the age of 35. Hi influence over successive generations cannot be overestated - Ludwig van Beethoven wrote of Mozart "posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years”. Despite the immense success of his compositions, and the acclaim he received across Europe, Mozart achieved little financial security and rwas buried in an unmarked grave in Vienna's St Marx Cemetery.
