Lang Lang in the heart of the city

Piano Phenomenon on Cathedral Square

It was both an unforgettable musical experience and at the same time a reason for double the joy: This was the second time internationally celebrated superstar Lang Lang accepted The Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen’s invitation and captured the hearts not only of the audience in the Glocke concert hall – but also of the many lovers of classical music who followed the concert featuring the world-class pianist via livestream nearby in Bremen’s Cathedral Square (Domshof).

In the pre-programme, the multi-talented TV presenter Yared Dibaba took the open-air guests behind the scenes and gave fascinating live insights into the concert preparations with backstage interviews – among others with chief conductor Paavo Järvi or Oliver Rau, CEO of Bremen’s economic development agency, which helped make the open-air event in the heart of the city possible.

With a typical North German »Moin Moin«, the celebrated star pianist also greeted the audience in the Domshof, who were then able to enjoy the symphonies by Haydn and Brahms as well as Beethoven’s 3rd piano concerto with Lang Lang to the full under the clear Bremen night sky.

Highlights 2023

New concert season is starting

Starting the new concert season with illustrious names and exciting programmes, the Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen is resuming its subscription concerts in 2023, presenting musical highlights in a class of their own.

Alongside exciting debuts – for instance with the exceptional soprano Asmik Grigorian and the conductor Elim Chan – and a return to the Glocke with artists such as the Finnish jazz pianist Iiro Rantala, the cellist Sol Gabetta, the internationally celebrated pianist Jan Lisiecki and the star baritone Matthias Goerne, the orchestra is taking the violinist Hilary Hahn on tour. The Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen’s podium will be graced by Peter Ruzicka, Jérémie Rhorer, the orchestra’s first ›Principal Guest Conductor‹ Tarmo Peltokoski and of course Chief Conductor Paavo Järvi. In June 2023, the orchestra will once again entice audiences to its ›Summer in Lesmona‹. Old favourites from the Future Lab such as ›Melody of Life‹ and the Community Opera on the Osterholz-Tenever’s ›Green Hill‹ are just some of the season’s concert highlights.

Reserve your tickets online or via the Customer Service. Advance Sales for all concerts in the Glocke begin at 10am on 6th January 2023.

There is a further reason to celebrate: founded in 1980, the Kammer­philharmonie will mark its 30-year Bremen Jubilee in 2023! Celebrations for this will begin in January with a ›Late Night Jazz‹ Event featuring Iiro Rantala and there will be other opportunities to celebrate with us throughout the year. Prepare to be surprised!

Tarmo Peltokoski

›Principal Guest Conductor‹ of The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen

For the first time in its 42-year-history, The Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen has awarded the title of ›Principal Guest Conductor‹. From February 2022, the young Finn Tarmo Peltokoski will be the first to hold this position.

For the orchestra members and Managing Director Albert Schmitt, it was a logical step to welcome the Finnish multi-talent within The Kammer­philharmonie family after his acclaimed German debut in June 2021 at the ›Glocke‹ concert hall in Bremen, followed by further musical activities. »We took advantage of the exceptional pandemic situation to do unusual things, such as giving a 21-year-old young artist the opportunity to introduce himself as a conductor. The experience was simply overwhelming and it was clear we absolutely had to engage him.«

Paavo Järvi, Artistic Director of The Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen since 2004, is delighted with the addition. »I have met Tarmo, am impressed by his talent and am very much looking forward to a lively exchange with him in the coming years,« Järvi said. For Peltokoski, who has long admired The Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie and greatly appreciates the exceptional skill, curiosity and attention to detail of each orchestra member, a long-held wish is coming true. »Deep love and respect binds me to The Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen. The greatest moments of music making I have experienced have been with them, and I am indescribably grateful, honoured and blessed to have been granted this title«, Peltokoski said.

This year, The Deutsche Kammer­philharmonie Bremen and its first Principal Guest Conductor can be heard at the Musikfest Bremen, the Beethovenfest Bonn and the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, among others.
