Philharmonic Chamber Music

Series Q

If one takes the term “chamber music” literally, it suggests a reflective quality that doesn’t necessarily apply to the great works of the genre. This is especially true of Franz Schubert, whose music not only enchants us with its melodic beauty but also impresses us through its structural complexity and the extreme emotional worlds to which it leads us. These are more than enough reasons for the musicians of the Berliner Philharmoniker to focus on Schubert’s chamber music in this subscription series. The climax will be a Schubert marathon in April 2024 that passes through this landscape of the soul – including famous works like the “Trout” Quintet, the String Quintet in C major and the haunting “Death and the Maiden” Quartet.

The Scharoun Ensemble has a traditionally close connection with Schubert. His expansive Octet, coming from the tradition of ingeniously diverting serenades, was on the programme when the group was formed in 1983. Now it will be heard again in its 40th-anniversary concert. The Feininger Trio’s contribution emphasizes Schubert as a founding father of Romanticism. With his Piano Trio in E flat major as point of departure, the concert will press forward to the end phase of that era with darkly emotional trios by Johannes Brahms and Alexander von Zemlinsky.

A further concert in the series continues this journey in the direction of Expressionism and emerging Modernism, offering Verklärte Nacht and Pierrot Lunaire, two rapt, dreamlike masterworks from Arnold Schoenberg’s early and middle creative periods. To close this series, musicians including four soloists from the Berliner Philharmoniker and the pianist Eric Le Sage will undertake a colourful tour through the chamber repertoire, concluding with Schoenberg’s visionary First Chamber Symphony.
