In a unique opportunity in Berlin, the Institute for Artistic Training in Early Music and Historic Performance Practice brings together teachers and students of historical instruments.
Chamber Music Hall Isoldestrasse
Isoldestrasse 9, Berlin-Friednau
Music has been played on historical instruments in Friedenau since 1986: in the chamber music hall, audiences can experience the authentic sound of 17th to early 19th century music.
The concerts have developed into a cultural hallmark of the Friedenau district with their outstanding combination of space and sound; today, they have earned major national and international recognition. The hall's intimate atmosphere creates a very special musical experience, offering close contact to the music and players, in a way that a large chamber music hall cannot. Our events attract audiences from far beyond the boundaries of Berlin.
The UdK Berlin is able to provide its musicians with a double harpsichord (a Taskin-reconstruction by Keith Hill), a Böhm grand piano (Vienna, ca. 1830), and a Stein-reconstruction by Michael Walker. The GFFK owns a Stöcker grand piano (ca. 1850, currently unplayable) and also has a Broadwood grand piano dating from 1792 available on loan, as well as a later one from 1847. It is also possible to hear harpsichords brought by the artists themselves.
