Musikfest Berlin

Beethoven Cycle with Igor Levit

Musikfest Berlin sees itself as a forum for the innovative creative work carried out by large-scale orchestras and ensembles in the genre of classical and modern music. The Berlin concert season is ushered in spectacularly in late summer by the Berliner Festspiele’s orchestra festival – run jointly with the Berliner Philharmoniker Foundation. Top international orchestras, instrumental and choral ensembles and the great symphony orchestras of the city of Berlin together present an ambitious festival programme with a new thematic focus each year.
