“An insightful, elegant and robust performance...The brilliant Berlin musicians gave an articulate and rhapsodic performance.”

THE NEW YORK TIMES

Innovative programming, a refined tonal culture and spirited interpretations are hallmarks of the Scharoun Ensemble of the Berlin Philharmonic, which performs in a variety of instrumental combinations rooted in the classical octet form. Bridging the span from Baroque to modern, the ensemble’s wide-ranging repertoire inspires concert audiences around the world. Founded in 1983 and named in honor of architect Hans Scharoun (1893 – 1972), creator of the orchestra’s iconic home, Berliner Philharmonie, a unique concert hall undertaking a synthesis between innovation and awareness of tradition and opening new approaches to artistic communication – ideals to which the Scharoun Ensemble is also committed. The ensemble’s Ovations program is especially dynamic with works by Antonin Dvorak, Francois Devienne and Ludwig van Beethoven.
