About the Event
'Dance' — The diversity of dance from the Renaissance to waltz, tango and foxtrot. An artistic spectrum from Monteverdi and Piazzolla to Brahms and Bernstein at the Konzerthaus Berlin.
Elegantly floating minuet, dreamy waltz, profound tango, pulsating mambo — under the virtuoso baton of star violinist Daniel Hope, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra takes the audience in the Great Hall on a journey through epochs and continents. Feet in the stalls and on the balcony are sure to bob along rhythmically, and the melodies will reverberate for a long time to come, accompanied by humming concertgoers on their way home. After all, at heart, music serves one purpose above all — to make us dance, doesn't it?

Five times the winner of the ECHO Klassik Prize, British violinist Daniel Hope has performed as soloist with some of the world's most distinguished orchestras and conductors. He is the winner of the Classical Brit Award, and has been nominated four times for a Grammy award.
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.
