In the anniversary season of the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin, chamber music ensembles from the RSB will perform at the Humboldt Forum for the first time.
The musicians are returning to the historic location where the RSB has performed several times in the Palace of the Republic in the past. Inspired by the collections and exhibitions, micro-concerts will be performed.

Four trombones and a tuba, blown by members of the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin: they welcome visitors to the large foyer of the Humboldt Forum on Museum Sunday with sublime brass music from three centuries. Just like in St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, where the early Baroque master Girolamo Frescobaldi was the papal organist and composer, the instrumental chants and dance tunes resound from the galleries high up in the foyer.

The five musicians then move through the levels of the staircase; visitors are cordially invited to follow the sounds. Access possible at any time.
The works by Girolamo Frescobaldi, Giovanni Battista Sammartini, Sir James Paul McCartney, John Winston Ono Lennon and others will be briefly introduced during the event by RSB concert dramaturge Steffen Georgi. The exact programme sequence will be published on this page shortly before the concert.
Microconcert #1 is the first in a series of concerts in which RSB musicians enter into a dialogue with the exhibitions. The Humboldt Forum and the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin are jointly organising the micro-concerts on museum Sundays until June 2024 – as part of the RSB’s 100th anniversary.

The performances by RSB members take place during opening hours and admission is free.
