About the Event
For an extraordinary evening of Baroque classics, visit the impressive Philharmonie Berlin in Berlin to hear the masterpieces of Vejvanovský, Monteverdi, Biber, Schmelzer and Farina.
The Philharmonie is a concert hall opened in 1963 in West Berlin. It is considered the musical heart of the German capital, as well as the new urban centre after the fall of the infamous Berlin Wall. Its distinctive bright yellow exterior and unusual tent‐like shape quickly made it a city landmark. The surprising design and architecture were initially viewed negatively by many, but the Philharmonie is now considered a model for concert halls worldwide. The architect, Hans Scharoun, aimed to design a concert hall in which the focal point — the musicians on the concert platform — is equally visible from every seat, an aim that gave rise to the hall's unusual shape. Since its inauguration, the Berliner Philharmonie has hosted numerous concerts, often featuring acclaimed soloists and conductors.
- Monteverdi, Claudio – »Balletto della Bellezza«
- Biber, Heinrich Ignaz Franz – »Die Bauern Kirchfahrtt«
- Biber, Heinrich Ignaz Franz – »Nachtwächter‐Serenade«
