The Chamber Music Festival at the Jewish Museum Berlin
intonations. The Jerusalem International Chamber Music Festival
The Jerusalem International Chamber Music Festival headed by renowned pianist Elena Bashkirova is one of Israel's most important cultural events, bringing outstanding musicians from around the world together. Every spring since 2012, it has been a welcome guest at the Jewish Museum Berlin.
The festival has found a second home here and an exceptional stage in the Glass Courtyard for its concept. Promising young talents, members of top international orchestras, and renowned soloists celebrate the dialog between cultures and a love of chamber music with the audience.
In 2020, the festival will take place from 25 April to 30 April 2020.
Review of the festival 2019
Viennese composers whose creative period dates from the late 18th century to the first decades of the 19th century played a central role in this year’s festival. Alongside works by the “Viennese classics” such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Franz Schubert, compositions by Gustav Mahler, Arnold Schönberg, Hanns Eisler, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and Ernst von Dohnányi were also on the program.
A further focus is adaptations of musical pieces that have either been transformed into a new sound form or whose composition has been taken a step further, such as Schönberg’s arrangement of Strauss’ Kaiserwalzer. And, as every year, the 2019 festival also featured rarities – pieces by Finnish-Swedish composer Bernhard Crusell and by Vladimir Tarnopolski, one of the most important Russian composers of our time.
