UPDATE: Pre-Concert Talks from 8 May
Our popular pre-concert-talks with Habakuk Traber are back in May: As usual, they will take place before our symphony concerts at 7.10 pm in the South Foyer of the Philharmonie.
Pre-Concert Talk as Podcast (until 30 April)
For many DSO friends, the introductory lectures with Habakuk Traber are an integral part of the programme of a concert evening. As they are currently not allowed to take place in the Philharmonie due to current regulations, we are presenting them to you in advance as a podcast. Habakuk Traber talks with Volker Michael from Deutschlandfunk Kultur about exciting and interesting facts about the programmes of the upcoming DSO concert. [in German]
Pre-Concert Talk with Habakuk Traber
Before the symphony concerts in the Philharmonie, the DSO offers a concert introduction. In 30 minutes, Habakuk Traber, musicologist and author, provides insights into the form and content of the music performed, presents interesting facts about their genesis and reception, and gives listening examples at the piano or on recordings. On special occasions, such as premières and first performances, he sometimes welcomes guests for discussions, such as composers or conductors. [in German]
The introduction begins 50 minutes before each concert and takes place in the South Foyer of the Philharmonie.
