There is cause for celebration: The Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin is celebrating its 100th anniversary. As in the past, they continue to see their role as making music accessible to everyone. Thoroughly democratic. At the highest musical level. The opening is explosive. Modest Mussorgsky: a short work, grandiose and thunderous. It is followed by Shostakovich’s second cello concerto performed by Truls Mørk, one of the most outstanding cellists of our time. The evening’s highlight is Prokofiev’s 3rd Symphony “The Fiery Angel”. Its origins lie in a nonsensical medieval story of demons, sexual obsession, devil worship and mass hysteria. In Prokofiev’s hands, it becomes forceful, even brutal, so monumental, in fact, that the chandeliers tremble. A musical firework in one of Europe’s acoustically best concert halls. This is an evening that is not to be missed.

That will save you time waiting at the pay stations after the end of events.
