crescendo 2022

crescendo2022: aufge f ühlt


Under the motto aufgefühlt, the UdK Berlin is holding its music festival crescendo for the second time in pandemic times. Nowhere else is music as touching as in an analog concert; listeners and musicians get in touch again, experience the sound - the vibrating air together in the concert hall. The festival breaks through the digital barrier of the stirring times and we are amazed at what emerges: top-class chamber music formations with professors, students and guests as well as interdisciplinary concert formats weave their way through the diverse program. In the opening concerts, professors from the university will present chamber music in a wide variety of instrumentations. We celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Institute of Old Music, see inaugural concerts by two newly appointed professors of guitar and piano, celebrate the instrument of 2022, the "drumset", with the percussion class, hear works by avant-garde composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann, and marvel at the young talents of the Julius Stern Institute and the State and Cathedral Choir. Excursions into early music, pop and jazz (musical and big band) and new music (ensemble ilinx) guarantee further impulses for the analog concert experience. The music, its interpreters and the concepts are as diverse as they are interesting, offering musical entertainment at the highest level and for every taste over the course of two weeks.

With a few exceptions, the concerts will take place in the concert hall of the University of the Arts Berlin and with free entry, live, on site and in color - to be felt. The Symphony Orchestra of the UdK Berlin, conducted by Steven Sloane, closes the festival on the big stage. It will perform Mahler's 3rd Symphony in the Philharmonie's Great Hall on June 19.

crescendo 2022 celebrates the regained freedom with filled halls, where musicians and listeners experience the music together, feel it and get goose bumps. Be there - and feel with us!
