About the Event
Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Berlin's breathtaking Konzerthaus Berlin for the ultimate concert set to awake your understanding of contemporary music.
The dazzling cultural scene of the Weimar Republic may have perished like Babylon, but the music of its ingenious creators lives on. This is the case with the Oskar Strock & Eddie Rosner Orchestra. The musicians of the sextet bring the music of their namesakes back to the stage along with works by Oskar and Eddie's contemporaries. Two gifted artists who, after their expulsion from Germany, were co‐founders of the jazz and tango traditions of many countries.
In the program 'From Swing to Tango' the ensemble presents evergreens, but also many insider tips from the 40s to 70s. The musicians provide an authentic atmosphere and a breathtaking journey through time. The songs are interpreted in many languages (German, Polish, English, Yiddish, Ukrainian…). An experience of a special kind: not only a cultural musical dialogue, but a true feast for all lovers of this dance music.

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.
