Monument marking Moses Mendelssohn’s former home

A reading by actor Burghart Klaußner will honor the place that forever connects the thinker who “achieved immortal things” to Berlin: It will be held in front of his former home on Spandauer Strasse in Berlin-Mitte, where a monument by Micha Ullman and a memorial plaque commemorate Moses Mendelssohn today. The duo Clariac, with Christine Pate on the accordion and Matthias Badczong on the clarinet, will provide the musical accompaniment to the jour fixe on Mendelssohn’s birthday with works by George Frideric Handel and others.

In cooperation with the Mendelssohn Society and St. Matthew Foundation.
