A historic stroke of luck
Founded in Berlin in 1989, ensemble unitedberlin became a symbol of the renewed bonding of music and musicians in the long-divided capital.
Artistic Advisor of ensemble unitedberlin since 2015.
… I haven’t heard the ensemble play so inspiringly and with such depth and warmth for a long time. The pianissimo in Busoni’s Berceuse Élégiaque faded away marvellously into a terrifying silence, … pure goose pimples music.
UnitedBerlin has existed for over 25 years. Originally genuinely East German in character, it has advanced to become an indispensable part of the Berlin operation. Under violinist and manager Andreas Bräutigam against the sting like no other ensemble in the capital.
And at its current concert, the ensemble unitedberlin also played at a remarkable level. There are excellent soloists who enjoy the virtuoso challenges, also well presented as a whole ensemble. A convincing performance...
UnitedBerlin played in top form, brilliantly conducted by Vladimir Jurowski. An evening with I'art pour I'art at the highest level.
