Family Concerts

Series FK

In our family concerts, we whisk audiences both young and old away from the reality of the big city and into the musical wonderland of classical music. Catchy tunes are guaranteed in December when the 12 cellists of the Berliner Philharmoniker join forces with presenter and horn colleague Sarah Willis to bring the auditorium to life with the Cello Christmas concert.

In the second concert, the entire orchestra is at hand to musically recreate the sounds and noises of the sea in Claude Debussy’s La Mer – with images of waves and wind that catapult us into the early 20th century. The Philharmonic Stradivari Soloists Berlin turn the wheel of time back even further: on the one hand with their legendary 18th century string instruments, on the other with Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons from the same period. Birds chirp, there is thunder and lightning, the rich harvest is celebrated, and suddenly we can hear the ice cracking under our skates!

To close the season, we are treated to the sumptuous Russian orchestral music of Tchaikovsky’s Francesca da Rimini. Chief conductor Kirill Petrenko explains the content and tonal language of this symphonic poem and, together with the Berliner Philharmoniker, makes its sometimes soulful, sometimes dramatic tonal kaleidoscope shine.
