With “Herz” and Mendelssohn

A chamber music evening, performed by members of the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, is dedicated to three female composers. Including Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy’s sister, Fanny Hensel-Mendelssohn, the actual inventor of the “Songs without Words”. Grażyna Bacewicz was considered a musical luminary of the mid-20th century in Poland. And Maria Herz (1878-1950)? Is currently being rediscovered, for example by us!


Ballrooms have had a great time in Berlin. Without the plush dance halls, the Golden Twenties would probably not have become the cult brand that it is today, and which even had an impact on the founding years of radio. The RSB opens up two of Berlin’s lovingly maintained ballrooms for selected chamber concerts: the Ballhaus Wedding and the Ballhaus Neukölln, today’s “Heimathafen”.

Both mark stations on an imaginary line between the orchestra’s two radio houses during its 100-year history: the Haus des Rundfunks in Charlottenburg and the Funkhaus Nalepastraße in Oberschöneweide.
