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.
