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. The accompanying seasonal programme booklet invites you to join in, play and do handicrafts.
