OPEN TO THE FUTURE
Only steps away from the Humboldt University, the Foreign Office, and the Humboldt Forum, young musicians, primarily from the countries of the Middle East and North Africa, have been studying at the Barenboim-Said Akademie since the fall of 2016. The Pierre Boulez Saal opened in March 2017 with a concert of the newly founded Boulez Ensemble conducted by Daniel Barenboim. Ever since, the building has been a space in which music, innovation, history, scholarship, and culture meet every day. The first class of students has since graduated with their bachelor’s degrees. The hall hosts approximately 150 events per season.
