About the Concert

Composer Sven Helbig presents listeners of his weekly radio show ›Schöne Töne‹ on Berlin's Radio Eins with music he discovers on his musical adventures. Classical orchestral music meets electronica, ambient and experimental music in an original and effortless way. Together with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Helbig will bring his ›Schöne Töne‹ live to the stage at the Haus des Rundfunks twice in the 2023/2024 season. Sven Helbig will host the evening, welcoming exciting musical guests and telling anecdotes from his seemingly endless treasure trove of music stories.
