Lend an ear to...

Music beyond the Pierre Boulez Saal

© Kurt Weill Foundation for Music

The "thinking ear" is always curious. This is why the Pierre Boulez Saal is a hall opened to the world of chamber music. We are genuinely interested in the programs of other venues or festivals in Berlin and beyond. In this section we will feature performances, events or initiatives that we consider interesting. 



Every year, the city of Dessau honors its most prominent son with the Kurt Weill Fest. The 2018 festival takes “Weill on Stage!” for its motto: a wide-ranging program will explore the composer’s music theater works as well as Kurt Weill the person and his extraordinary story. Across multiple venues in Dessau-Roßlau, Halle, Magdeburg, and elsewhere, artists including Till Brönner (as Artist in Residence), Jan Josef Liefers, Dagmar Manzel, Jochen Kowalksi, and Ute Lemper, as well as internationally acclaimed instrumental and vocal ensembles, will perform at historic sites and in museums and other unusual locations.
