Concert information

Biennale of the Berliner Philharmoniker



In this series, the Berliner Philharmoniker and guests spark enthusiasm for classical music and take a closer look at the art of composing. In moderated concerts, they demonstrate the sound colours of the instruments or show how nature can sound.

In the third family concert, we show how Ludwig van Beethoven was inspired by nature – with his Symphony No. 6, nicknamed “Pastorale”. Birdsong, swirling streams and hissing lightning bring rural right into the centre of the concert hall.
