Composer: Antonín Dvořák, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Johannes Brahms



Simon Rattle conducts Dvořák, Turnage and Brahms


Rarely is classical music as cheerful as in the serenades of the 18th century. Simon Rattle shows at this concert how ingeniously the genre was taken up in the late romantic era. Thus, for instance, Antonín Dvořák expanded traditional forms in his wind serenade to include Bohemian colours. Johannes Brahms, whose Serenade No. 2 has almost symphonic dimensions, went even one step further. There is also a new work by Mark-Anthony Turnage.

Berliner Philharmonie - Chamber Music Hall

The Berliner Philharmonie is a concert hall in Berlin, Germany. Home to the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the building is acclaimed for both its acoustics and its architecture.


The Philharmonie lies on the south edge of the city's Tiergarten and just west of the former Berlin Wall, an area that for decades suffered from isolation and drabness but that today offers ideal centrality, greenness, and accessibility. Its cross street and postal address is Herbert-von-Karajan-Straße, named for the orchestra's longest-serving principal conductor. The neighborhood, often dubbed the Kulturforum, can be reached on foot from the Potsdamer Platz station.


Actually a two-venue facility with connecting lobby, the Philharmonie comprises a Großer Saal of 2,440 seats for orchestral concerts and a chamber-music hall, the Kammermusiksaal, of 1,180 seats. Though conceived together, the smaller venue was added only in the 1980s.
