Artist in Residence

We are pleased to welcome Augustin Hadelich to Gendarmenmarkt during our 2023/24 season.

For the 2023/24 season, we welcome a fantastic violinist to a multifaceted residency on Gendarmenmarkt. During our photo shoot at the Konzerthaus, we quickly realised that Augustin Hadelich is looking forward to his residency just as much as we are:

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to be artist in residence at the Konzerthaus Berlin. This venerable building, which has already lived through so much since its time as the Königliches Schauspielhaus, offers a unique ambience for music within its halls. I will give solo performances there, play chamber music, and of course, will also perform as a soloist with the Konzerthausorchester. Towards the end of the residency, there will be a tour with the Konzerthausorchester and Joana Mallwitz – but until that happens, I’m looking forward to many hours of beautiful music in this wonderful venue.”

About the residency program

Augustin Hadelich’s first appearance will take him to the Musikfest Berlin on 7 September with the Konzerthausorchester and its principal conductor, Joana Mallwitz. The programme features a violin concerto by the Irishman Donnacha Dennehy from 2021, about which Augustin Hadelich has already provided insights:

“Donnacha has a fondness for crafting minimalist textures while avoiding rigid dogmatism. He composed a virtuoso solo part for me that tells its own story. The Irish fiddle tradition comes through, as well as French spectralism.”

The violinist can be heard next in the Small Hall during the Christmas season, when he delves into the Partitas by Johann Sebastian Bach and other works for solo violin on 13 December. To Augustin Hadelich, the piano trio on 29 January signifies an intimate gathering of friends who engage in chamber music. Together with cellist Marie-Elisabeth Hecker and pianist Martin Helmchen, he will interpret works by Haydn, Kodály, Kurtág and Schumann.

With Iván Fischer and the Konzerthausorchester, the melody-saturated Violin Concerto by Antonín Dvořák will be on the programme on 15 & 17 March, while on 8 April the Berlin Baroque Soloists conducted by violinist Noah Bendix-Balgley are our guests for an all-Mozart programme with our artist in residence. Towards the end of the season, Augustin Hadelich will once again join the Konzerthausorchester under Joana Mallwitz on 24 & 25 May for Brahms’ great Violin Concerto:

“Engaging in a chamber music dialogue with the orchestra requires being in perfect harmony, and I am fortunate to share that wavelength with Joana Mallwitz. I am eagerly anticipating our performance of the Brahms piece together.”
