The concert with members of the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester and the Rundfunkchor Berlin illuminates a fascinating section of Jewish music and Jewish culture in the 1920s in Berlin.

Era of the 1920s in Berlin. Until the National Socialists seized power in 1933, Berlin was considered one of the most culturally exciting cities in the world for about a decade. Right in the centre: Kurt Weill, Bertolt Brecht and their Dreigroschenoper. But the Jewish cantors Arno Nadel, Mark Warschawski and Joseph Achron also wrote Berlin music history in an endearing way.


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.
