NEW PRUSSIAN PHILHARMONY, BERLIN
The Berlin-based free orchestra, Neue Preussische Philharmonie, was founded in 2013 on the initiative of the oboist Takahiro Watanabe, the violist Raimund Eckertz and the conductor Thomas Hennig. It consolidates and unifies the artistic values from previous chamber music groups and connects them with the symphonic orchestral experiences of a core group of freelance chamber musicians as well as colleagues from other top Berlin ensembles. In addition to presenting its own concert repertoire, the Neue Preussische Philharmonie also partners with various concert choirs and select soloists.
The repertoire ranges from Baroque sacred works, Classical symphonic music to late Romantic choral works. The Neue Preussische Philharmoni e performs all over Europe and presents its own concert series in various Berlin churches and concert halls, in particular the Chamber Music Hall of the Berlin Philharmonie and the Berlin Philharmonie itself.
