About the Event

In this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of chamber music by Mozart, Bartók and Dubugnon at Berlin's treasured and world‐renowned Philharmonie Berlin.

Philharmonie Berlin

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.


  • Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus – Fünf vierstimmige Fugen aus Bachs Wohltemperiertem Klavier II. Teil KV 405
  • Dubugnon, Richard – Säkulare Suite (basierend auf Werken von J. S. Bach)
  • Bartók, Béla – Streichquartett Nr. 6 D‐Dur Sz 114

String Quartet: Quatuor Ebène

The Quatuor Ebène has studied extensively with the Ysaye Quartet in Paris as well as with the eminent Gábor Takács, Eberhard Feltz et György Kurtág.  Since its dramatic 2004 triumph at the prestigious ARD international competition in Munich, where the quartet was also awarded five additional special prizes, the Ebènes have gone on to win the Forberg‐Schneider Foundation’s Belmont Prize in 2005.  It has since remained close to the foundation, which very generously arranged to have the quartet outfitted with several unique Italian instruments, on loan to the quartet members from private owners.
From “promising young ensemble”, the Quatuor Ebène has grown to become one of today’s foremost quartets on the international scene.  Recently the foursome was specially selected to take part in the BBC’s esteemed “New Generation Artists” scheme, closely supported by the Borletti‐Buitoni Foundation, which sponsored their first, critically acclaimed live recording of works by Haydn as well as a second CD entirely devoted to works of Bartók.
During the 2007‐2008 season, the quartet was heard throughout Europe, Asia and the United States in some of the most prestigious concert halls including Vienna’s Musikverein, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Berlin’s Philarmonic and New York’s Carnegie Hall.  In 2009 the Ebènes were also featured as part of Wigmore Hall’s Haydn Cycle in London, alongside the Hagen, Emerson and Arcanto quartets.
