About the Event
In this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of classical music by Beethoven, Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Chopin at Berlin's treasured and world‐renowned Konzerthaus.
The Dessau Orchestra is one of the oldest and most traditional orchestras in Saxony‐Anhalt. For decades, it has performed at the Great Berlin Christmas Festival Concert, which has become a firm and beloved tradition. It is also a tradition that the orchestra always brings along a young soloist who has won several awards and who continues to be heard in subsequent years. This year, the orchestra presents the exceptional talent Joseph Moog, who already thrilled the Berlin audience on the piano in 2017.
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.
