Chamber Music

As a social meeting place, literary circle and musical venue, the salon fulfilled various functions in 19th century Berlin. This was where the nobility and the middle classes, great politicians, philosophers, poets, thinkers and artists of the time met informally, exchanged views, and enjoyed the inspiring ambience. The soul of the salon was always an interesting, educated woman such as Henriette Herz, Rahel Varnhagen or Bettina von Arnim. With music and texts performed by Naomi and Max Hopp, the Philharmonic Salon evokes the memory of Berlin's great salonnières.
