Surrounded by the industrial flair of the urbanharbor complex, a trio from the Mahler Chamber Orchestra will combine modern architecture and early music for a good three-quarters of an hour on Saturday, July 1
The crowning finale of each season is traditionally an impressive fireworks display together with the Festival Orchestra. In 2023, the sky will again shine in all colours at the »Monrepos Open Air«. Since 2010, Potsdamer Feuerwerk GmbH has had it in its hands – under the direction of Björn Wilhelm. Born in Berlin, he began his pyrotechnics career at Potsdamer Feuerwerk GmbH and, since 2005, has been the head of the company, which specializes in fireworks, laser and multimedia shows.
The mass as a genre of church music has a long development behind it: over the course of time, initially monophonic chants developed into increasingly complex musical works with the goal of an artistic aesthetic. The strict liturgical binding gave way to the establishment as an independent musical genre – a process that can be traced using the measurements of the three big Bs as an example.
A spherical dive begins as soon as the first note of trumpeter Marco Blaauw connects with the film »Moving Picture 946-3«. The joint project of visual art, film, composition and live music, which can be experienced at Scala on June 24, is preceded by an exciting genesis.
Strict dress codes, strange rules of conduct and an audience of over-60s – for decades, the classical music world has been nibbling away at a somewhat dusty reputation that is more stubborn than white lint on black suit trousers. In truth, however, classical music is different than its image.
In one-hour, free workshops, we therefore explain everything you need to know about attending a concert in a relaxed atmosphere.
There are sure to be a few question marks before your first visit to a concert. What do I want to listen to? What do I have to wear? And how do I behave during the event? Here you can read step by step what you need to know before visiting us – and where your worries may be completely unfounded.
In many industries, women are still underrepresented today. This fact does not actually apply to music. For at no time in history has there been a lack of musical creations or cultural action by the female sex. The
freelance musicologist Susanne Wosnitzka explains aspects of a whole world of misappropriated musical history, reflected in the meager awareness of female virtuosos.
It is actually a very nice tradition when artists are presented with flowers at the end of a concert. In the spirit of sustainability, however, we would like to express our gratitude in the long term and instead of bouquets we give away certificates of tree and flower meadow sponsorships.
We would like to report on our own contribution to a climate-neutral and sustainable cultural landscape in the narrow sense and to the implementation of the 17 goals in the broad sense. It is very important to us to keep an eye on the effects of our institutional actions, to check them and to constantly improve them. We have supplemented our interim assessment from 2021 with interim goals achieved and measures introduced in 2022.
