Non-subscription concert chamber music


In October 2013 Tabea Zimmermann – violist celebrated around the world, musical partner of the Berliner Philharmoniker for many years now and professor at the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music – invites you to a viola festival. The focus of the diverse three-day event around the violin’s big sister is on the life and work of Paul Hindemith: the 50th anniversary of his death is two months later. Concerts, lectures, courses and a small exhibition on the topic “Paul Hindemith in Berlin” will remind us of the important German composer and violist and contrast his works with viola music by other composers across several centuries.

The culminating moment of the Viola Festival – hosted by the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler”, the German Viola Society and the Frankfurt Hindemith Institute – is a concert on 12 October in the Chamber Music Hall of the Berlin Philharmonie. On the programme performed by Tabea Zimmermann and members of the Berliner Philharmoniker in a wide variety of instrumental settings, there will be works by Johann Sebastian Bach, George Benjamin, Luciano Berio and York Bowen, besides Hindemith’s First String Trio op. 34 from 1924 and the Sonata for viola d’amore and piano, composed in 1922. It will be a real delight for all friends of the viola – and those who would like to become so!
