About the Event
Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Berlin's breathtaking Konzerthaus for the ultimate concert set to awake your understanding of classical music with symphonic works and chamber music on the evening's topic of conversation.
'Through good music we tell ourselves stories,' our chief conductor Joana Mallwitz is convinced. This is also one of the goals of the 'Night Sessions,' which she has newly developed with and for the Konzerthaus Berlin. These concerts with the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, which begin at 9:30 p.m. on Fridays, always revolve around a theme — 'Im.Puls' is the title of the first of the episodes moderated by Joana Mallwitz in an unusual stage setting. A guest with a surprising, exciting, different perspective on the theme completes the setup in each case. In this case, it's electronic musician and Ableton co‐developer Robert Henke, aka Monolake.
|Orchestra:|| Konzerthausorchester Berlin |
Founded in 1952 as the Berliner Sinfonie‐Orchester, the world‐class Konzerthausorchester Berlin was renamed in 2006. With over 100 concerts each season at its elegant home on Berlin’s historic Gendarmemarkt, the Konzerthausorchester Berlin is a mainstay of cultural life in the German capital.
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.
