German Chamber Orchestra: Own, but not well-behaved

If Gabriel Adorjan had decided on football as a teenager, who knows if he wouldn’t be the coach of Union or Hertha BSC today. But the doubly talented man chose music at the time, studied in Munich and Philadelphia, among other places, and in 2001 became concertmaster of the Komische Oper orchestra. Since 2008 he has also been Artistic Director of the German Chamber Orchestra. The independent ensemble, founded by Berlin musicians immediately after reunification in 1989, has its artistic home in the chamber music hall of the Philharmonie.

Gabriel Adorjan coordinates many concerts from the concertmaster’s seat, i.e. from the first desk of the first violins. Conducting guests are also regularly invited, this season for example the conductor Catherine Larsen-Maguire. She has put together a thoroughly British program for May 22, 2023, with a touch of “Last Night of the Proms” wafting through the chamber music hall.

A firm tradition at the Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin is the afternoon concert on Boxing Day. This year the trumpeter Reinhold Friedrich will shine as a soloist with Italian works from Vivaldi to Puccini. “What does nature sound like?” is the question on January 25 – answers then come from Beethoven, Edward Grieg, Johann Strauss and the Beatles.

On March 8, International Women’s Day, works by women composers will be performed under Gabriel Adorjan’s direction, with Liv Migdal as the violin soloist (Website: www.dko-berlin.de). FH
