Berliner Philharmoniker

For young talent aged 14-19 years

Young composers workshop

For the third time, the education department of the Berliner Philharmoniker is holding its young composers workshop OPUS ONE! Young people up to 19 years from all over Germany - whether students, apprentices, or young people in military or community service - can apply with their own chamber music compositions.

Discover the composer in you

Up to four applicants will be invited to Berlin to participate in a composition class in spring 2016. The intensive weekend includes analysis and discussion, as well as the development of works in direct consultation during rehearsals with musicians of the Berliner Philharmoniker and students of the Orchestra Academy of the Berliner Philharmoniker. 

First performance by professionals

The selected compositions will be premiered by members of the Berliner Philharmoniker and students of the Orchestra Academy. A professional audio recording of the concert will be available to workshop participants after completion.
