The Chamber Music Festival at the Jewish Museum Berlin
intonations. The Jerusalem International Chamber Music Festival
From 25 to 30 April 2020, the Jewish Museum Berlin will once again welcome the chamber music festival intonations. Under the direction of Elena Bashkirova, for the ninth time musicians from around the world will celebrate a musical dialog of cultures and their love of chamber music. During six concerts, top-tier instrumentalists and vocalists will present a thrilling spectrum of chamber music forms and varieties.
The beautiful city of Vienna and the waltzes named after it are the theme for this year's concert program: again and again the festival will turn in three-four time, for example with the melodically delightful waltzes of Johann Strauss the Younger, which were arranged with great avant-garde acuity by Arnold Schönberg, Alban Berg, and Anton Webern.
intonations ranges from the Waltz King to the Second Viennese School, from the classics to the modern. Of course Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and Brahms are included, along with Hugo Wolf, Anton Webern, Alban Berg, and the great symphony composer Anton Bruckner, one of whose rare chamber music pieces will be played.
Contemporary music is represented by a waltz series by Wolfgang Rihm, and a selection of short duets for violin and violoncello by Jörg Widmann. Special attention is also due to the premiere of a clarinet quartet by the Israeli composer Ella Milch-Sheriff.
We invite you to experience these extraordinary concert days—in the unique atmosphere of the Glass Courtyard at the Jewish Museum Berlin.
Advance sale starts on 20 February 2020. Members of Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin have access to an exclusive advance ticket sale starting on 13 February.
