About the Event
Explore the beauty of piano music at French Cathedral in Berlin, where masterworks from Chopin come to life in this incredible performance.
Frédéric Chopin has been celebrated as a master of Romanticism for 200 years. The composer himself loved to sit for hours at the piano and play to himself. A pianist with brilliant technique, he not only operated the 88 keys but 'touched' them. We present this beautiful simplicity of his music with outstanding young pianists in the series 'Chopin pur' in the French Cathedral.
Ido Ramot, already made his public debut with the Johannesburg Symphony Orchestra in 2003. Since then, the pianist has worked with orchestras in Israel and Italy. In addition, he regularly plays solo concerts in Israel, Germany, Spain, Italy, Scandinavia and the USA. In Israel, he is known from radio and television and as a prize winner of numerous competitions. Ido has worked with great artists such as Vladimir Feltsman, Ilana Vered, Murray Perahia, Richard Goode, Susan Starr, Arie Vardi anSergei Babayan.
The French Church Französischer Dom is one of the three key buildings at the Gendarmenmarkt, the most beautiful square in Berlin. The church was built as a place of worship for the Huguenots, followers of the Protestant Reformed Church of France, who were persecuted in their own country and found asylum in Berlin in the reign of Frederick the Great.
The French Cathedral stands opposite the German Church or Neue Kirche, their identical domes and styles forming a stunning architectural ensemble. Unusually, in this location, 'Dom' refers not to a German 'cathedral', but to the French 'dome'. The building houses the Huguenot museum, a restaurant and a viewing platform that offers a gorgeous view of Mitte district of Berlin.
