en passant

A different kind of introduction

What was it like to play Mozart’s original piano? How does a new work come into being? How do rehearsals sound? In our programme notes series ›en passant‹ you can learn about individual orchestra members, soloists and even conductors in a more personal context. Professor Ulrich Mückenberger and Kammer­philharmonie violist Anja Manthey will lead you ›en passant‹ through an entertaining evening with their guests, offering you vivid insights into the next concert programme.

The programme notes series ›en passant‹, organized in cooperation with the Bremen Chamber of Employees, is open to all interested parties. Held at various central venues, the series is free of charge.

Please see the local press for details of dates, or contact our customer hotline. Subscription holders will be informed of the ›en passant‹ dates in advance of the event and in writing.
