In September, our composer in residence Jörg Widmann will present three of his own works at the Musikfest Berlin. We also welcome Herbert Blomstedt, Tugan Sokhiev, Fabio Luisi, Jakub Hrůša, Zubin Mehta and Riccardo Minasi on the podium in autumn.

Chamber music concerts

Happy Birthday!

The Scharoun Ensemble Berlin owes its existence to Franz Schubert’s Octet: forty years ago, members of the Berliner Philharmoniker founded this formation to perform this work with its beguiling melodies and dance-like charm. So Schubert’s Octet could not be left out of this anniversary concert – nor could the other composers on the programme, with whom the ensemble has developed a close relationship.
