“…playing with impeccable intonation and technical polish, from the tense introduction to its dramatic finish.”
—The Washington Post

Founded in 1983 by members of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Scharoun Ensemble is one of Germany’s leading chamber music organizations. With its wide repertoire, ranging from the Baroque period to contemporary works, Scharoun has been inspiring audiences in Europe and overseas for more than a quarter of a century. Innovative programming, a refined tonal culture, and spirited interpretations are hallmarks of the ensemble, which performs in a variety of instrumental combinations. The program will include Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A major and Schubert’s Octet in F major.

Program to be announced.

The Scharoun Ensemble Berlin was founded in 1983 by members of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. The name of the architect Hans Scharoun (1893-1972) is inextricably linked with the Berlin Philharmonie, his greatest work. This concert hall has set standards worldwide, creating a space for making music in the spirit of tradition and experimentation in order to promote human communication and understanding. In honouring the legacy of Hans Scharoun, the eight musicians express an artistic self-concept which reflects their commitment to both the heritage of the past and the challenges of the present

The ensemble comprises the standard octet instrumentation. Beethoven’s Septet, Schubert’s Octet, and chamber works of Mozart and Brahms are the focus of its classical and romantic repertoire, as well as 20th-century classical Modernist works and contemporary music. The Scharoun Ensemble has performed numerous works by leading contemporary composers, many of which have been commissioned by the ensemble. Works by Hans Werner Henze, György Ligeti, Isang Yun, György Kurtág, Wolfgang Rihm, Matthias Pintscher, Thomas Adès, Jörg Widmann and many others form an integral part of the ensemble’s repertoire.
