Dear public and interested friends,

Welcome to the start of the 2017/18 season.

Remaining true to ourselves, we are once again going on tour. After careful consideration, we have accepted an invitation from our musical friend Erdal Akkaja for concerts in Turkey. We hope to set a sign for the continuation of our cultural exchange, regardless of the present political tensions.

In November, two remarkable Choral concerts will take place with the musical accompaniment of the Kammersymphonie Berlin. Something new for us will be our very first cooperation with the Philharmonischer Chor for a concert in the Philharmonie Berlin, and two weeks later, a performance with the Karl-Forster-Chor in the Konzerthaus Berlin.On Christmas Eve, we will celebrate the festive Christmette in the St. Hedwig Kathedrale. We will say goodbye to 2017 with our traditional New Year`s Eve concerts in Rheinsberg and Berlin, which are usually quickly sold out.

We are looking forward to sharing these fabulous concerts with you.

Yours sincerely, Kammersymphonie

THE ORCHESTRA

Das Orchester

It was out of shared artistic visions and under the impression of social changes in Berlin, that Jürgen Bruns together with some musician friends founded the Kammersymphonie in 1991.
Rarely performed and seldomly heard works of the classic modern, compositions of the early 20th century, formed the first programmatic focus of the ensemble. Together, highly motivated and interested musicians of the Berlin orchestras and the so-called independent scene played Honegger, Schreker and Milhaud.
A mutual concert with Jean Françaix in the Berlin Philharmonic Hall in 1993 formed the ensemble‘s first milestone.

The musical spectrum was rapidly enlarged by curiosity for the unknown and a permanent quest for innovative program ideas:

- obstracized music - render audible what is yet unheard
- crossover projects of all kinds, like dance performance evenings with Gregor Seyffarth or
- incidental music at the German Theatre („Mutter Courage“ produced by Peter Zadek)
- film music, e.g. with jazz musicians Henning Schmiedt and Atle Halstensen
- „Konzert im Denkmal“ (an open air concert in the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe)

Beside this by now well-established innovative programming, there has been a continuous engagement with the classic repertoire. Since more than 20 years, the Kammersymphonie has been a high-quality partner to the great choirs of Berlin, accompanying masses, oratorios and choral concerts.

Currently, the Kammersymphonie has broadened their musical horizon in an eastward direction, introducing yet another programmatic accent. Music from the Balkans, from Anatolia, Korean and other folk music converge within unique programs, also collating folk and classical musical instruments.

The orchestra has regularly toured Europe and Asia.

In addition to a large number of CD releases, there has been a longtime, continuous cooperation with several broadcasting companies, especially with Deutschlandradio Kultur, a radio station repeatedly showing interest in live concert recordings.

THE CONDUCTOR

Der Dirigent

JÜRGEN BRUNS is artistic director of the Kammersymphonie Berlin and of the ECCO (European Composers Community Orchestra). Until 2016, he has been chief conductor of the KOS Ljubljana, the Orchestra of Slovenian Composers, too.

With his extensive repertoire, Jürgen Bruns is often invited as guest conductor to orchestras all over Europe. He has conducted more than 90 world premieres in recent years, and his interpretations of the classical and romantic repertoire have been highly praised.

Jürgen Bruns is mostly renowned for his performances and recordings of re-discovered compositions of the classical modern era and ostracised music of the early 20th century. Working with these compositions has become a matter near to his heart, especially as a German conductor of the younger generation.

Jürgen Bruns is held in high esteem for his conceptual concert programming and for his cooperation with other art forms such as theatre, video, dance and literature.
Jürgen Bruns has received the sponsorship prize of the Ernst-von-Siemens Music Foundation several times and won a scholarship of the Music Academy Rheinsberg and the federal state of Brandenburg. He was also awarded by the IMFC for his interpretations of works by Janáček.

Jürgen Bruns started to learn several instruments and gave his first solo performance with orchestras at the age of nine. He then studied violin at the "Hanns Eisler" Academy of Music Berlin and in 1988 became a member of the Konzerthausorchester Berlin while still a student. At the same time he took up conducting classes with Rolf Reuter in Berlin and complemented them by studies with Gilbert Varga in Florence and Charles Bruck in Paris as well as at the "Pierre Monteux School" in Maine (USA) from 1991 - 1992.

In order to devote his time more intensely to conducting, he gave up his position at the Konzerthausorchster in 1991. Since then, Jürgen Bruns has developed an active conducting career with orchestras, operas and choirs in Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, France, Slovenia, Croatia, Romania, Poland, the Czech Republic, Great Britain, Turkey, Korea and Japan.
Also in 1991, Jürgen Bruns founded the Kammersymphonie Berlin, which has since become one of the most renowned German chamber orchestras. The main focus of the ensemble is on classical modern music and works by composers ostracized by Nazi Germany.

Jürgen Bruns is regularly invited to festivals such as the Festival International de Musique Sion, the Kurt-Weill-Fest Dessau, the Usedom Musikfestival, Dresdner Musikfestspiele, the Carinthian Summer and the Ravello Festival,  La Folle Journée and the Spring-Green-Music Festival Kanazawa. He often cooperates with famous theatre directors such as the late Peter Zadek, for whose stagings he was musical director several times.

An important aspect of his work as conductor is his busy recording schedule. So far, Jürgen Bruns has conducted more than 100 works for CD (for labels such as Deutsche Grammophon, EDA, Signum, Quadriga, Naxos, Capriccio, Hännsler Classics, Sony) as well as film and radio recordings, many of which were first recordings. From 2006 to 2009, Jürgen Bruns functioned as artistic director of the CD series "Club 100" at Deutsche Grammophon/Universal.

Kurt Weill: Sostenuto - Allegro molto aus der 2. Symphonie

Bruns's performance grabs you and never lets go. It emphasizes anger over elegance in I, rage over sadness in II, and bitter sarcasm over a hint at humor in III. Woodwinds dominate textures in a crystalline style akin to Stravinsky. Ensemble is tight and precise, with straight-on attacks and strict rhythm: listen to those strict and brittle string riffs.

I hope, that you will be able to continue (...) your artistic and dramaturgical success story.
Andrè Schmitz, Staatssekretär für Kulturelle Angelegenheiten

Thank you for the wonderful time I had the honor of sharing with you last year. The recording session was an amazing experience for both myself and Sony Music Norway. You are truly the most professional musicians and I hope, with all my heart, to get the chance of singing with you again - be it on other recordings or concerts. The CD, „Rein Alexander“, has sold well and we have received both a“gold“ and „Platinum“ record for it which is very inspireing and quite an achievement in Norwbut album... Everybody that hears this record asks about „this amazing orchestra..!“ and I proudly tell them all about you. Nobody can believe that we recorded this in two days. Thank you all so much for your wonderful musicality, sense of humour, professionality and for the way you made me feel welcome and therefore calm and relaxed to do my part.

It is now ten years since the establishment of a firm partnership between the Kammersymphonie Berlin and the Berlin Konzerthaus. (...) What distinguishes their way of making music is not only the Kammersymphonie‘s  high technical skills and stylistically assured interpretations. The open-mindedness and musical zest, with which the ensemble makes rarely performed works accessible for the concert hall, is also particularly striking.
Prof. Dr. Frank Schneider, Intendant des Konzerthaus Berlin in einem Schreiben vom 27. August 2001 zum 10jährigen Bestehen der Kammersymphonie

The Kammersymphonie Berlin under the leadership of their conductor Jürgen Bruns have provided me with truly wonderful musical hours within the last years - not only with my own works, but also with the whole spectrum of interpretations of fascinating programs that can‘t be heard elsewhere in Berlin. It is the great and almost unique achievement of this orchestra, to play music in an enthusiastic and thus enthusing way, with all immaculacy and confidence of artistic capability - with a beauty of sound, precision and splendid phrasing, also within the modern repertoire. Neither can [the audience] wish for more beautiful concerts - nor a composer for better interpretors!
Composer Detlev Glanert, whose „Neun Karrikaturen“ were first performed by the Kammersymphonie Berlin in 2001
