Members of the Berlin Philharmonics have often participated successfully in
the BERLIN-MARATHON, including some with very fast times. That cannot only be
due to the fact, that the course of the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON directly passes
by the Philharmonie! The organisers of the real,- BERLIN-MARATHON are even more
so pleased that the “MARATHON“ has now officially found its place
in classical music. We recommend a visit to our musical
It may sound a bit more athletic than it really is. But sometimes there are
marathon races in music, too. For the sixth time, the Berlin Philharmonics are
putting on a chamber music festival with the title "MARATHON".
Following Mozart, Brahms, Schubert, Mendelssohn/ Schumann and Beethoven, Joseph
Haydn will be the starred composer on March 30th.
All Sunday, from
11 a.m. well into the evening, the chamber music hall will be filled with music
of the great classical artist. That sounds like long and strenuous hours. But
the experiences of the past few years have demonstrated that a music marathon
can be a real pleasure for the participants. The event is well-prepared and
organised, both from a dramaturgical and culinary standpoint, and Karl-Dietrich
Gräwe will see to an entertaining moderation.
With members of the Berlin Philharmonics, high quality musicians will take
to the start, either as soloists or in ensemble teams—the Philharmonia
Quartet, Timm Quartet, Vincent Trio, Philharmonische Virtuosen, Divertimento
Berlin, and Breuninger Quartet. And the most enjoyable of it all is: unlike a
marathon race, when a pause is needed, the participants can skip a session, go
out an get a breath of fresh air, restore their strength at the buffet, drink a
beer, and talk about Haydn and the BERLIN MARATHON.
All of that is allowed. That makes music fun, all day long and well into the
Kammermusiksaal der Philharmonie
