EASTER IN BERLIN 2015 – MUSIC IS AN IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF EASTER FESTIVITIES IN BERLIN:
Easter is a popular holiday period in Germany and the Easter festivities are still celebrated in the traditional way by many Germans. Easter markets, Easter bonfires, Easter brunches and Easter services all form a part of the Easter celebrations in Germany.
Music is another important element of the Easter festivities and if you are in Berlin, there is a huge repertoire of Easter concerts that you can enjoy, including an Easter Tango Festival.
Below are some of the Berlin Easter concerts on offer:
At this Good Friday concert you can enjoy the choral works of Bach and Schubert conducted by Andreas Spering. The NDR Chorus performs alongside the Konzerthausorchester Berlin and soloists including star soprano Marlis Petersen.
The Berliner Virtuosen Ensemble, under the baton of Hans-Joachim Scheitzbach, present this Musical Easter Parade at the Konzerthaus Berlin, an Easter tradition for the past 20 years.
You wouldn’t normally associate Easter with Tango music, but this Easter you can enjoy an operatic concert performance with a Spanish flair at the Philharmonie Berlin (Grosser Saal).
On Easter Sunday, the Sinfonie Orchester Berlin perform works by great romantic composers, including Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture at the Philharmonie Berlin.
Italy comes to Berlin at this Easter weekend concert. Some of the most well-loved compositions in the Baroque repertoire include Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons’ and works by Puccini, Rossini and Corelli will be performed by Festival Orchestra Berlin under the baton of Stefan Bevier.
For an experience that’s a little different, indulge in a musical interlude at the Castle Köpenick in Berlin. Here you can enjoy performances by young talents and established musicians in the Aurora Hall of the lovely Baroque palace.
