Media release / July 20th, 2021

Young Euro Classic invites music lovers to enjoy concerts under an open sky: from August 5 to 9, 2021, the festival’s concerts will be broadcast live onto Gendarmenmarkt. The festival thereby expands the limited seating it can offer inside the Konzerthaus Berlin, creating additional seats for music-loving Berlin concertgoers.

With its livestreams, Young Euro Classic offers the special opportunity to listen to outstanding youth orchestras outside the Konzerthaus too, in an authentic audio-visual experience: the 3D sound system provides an immersive sound experience, conveying the feeling that the listener is inside the concert hall. The sound technology first used in 2019 during the 20th edition of Young Euro Classic offers an in-depth auditory experience in all its dimensions. Anyone who wants to experience this unique musical embrace should reserve a seat in advance.

The audience on Gendarmenmarkt will be offered an Austrian-Russian programme on August 5 by the Wiener Jeunesse Orchestra, with works by Franz Schubert, Kurt Schwertsik and Sergei Prokofiev spanning 200 years of music history. On August 6, the National Youth Orchestra of Germany gives an impressive rendition of Beethoven and Dvořák’s Symphony “From the New World” on the Konzerthaus forecourt. The National Youth Orchestra of Romania dedicates itself to Silvestri and Shostakovich, but also Robert Schumann’s “Spring Symphony”, on August 7. On August 8, the ensemble O/Modərnt New Generation Orchestra led by Hugo Ticciati performs two German premieres by Arturs Maskats and Marcelo Nisinman, amidst a programme entitled “Un/sung Heroines”. The festive finale of the open-air broadcasts features the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra, which performs Luciano Berio’s composition “Rendering” – a contemporary interpretation of the sketches of an unfinished Schubert symphony.
