Season Greetings

Once again we look back on a challenging year that kept the music world and its players constantly on tenterhooks: complete closures of theatres and concert halls at the beginning of the year, cautious attempts in early summer to get concert life going again by means of sophisticated hygiene concepts, finally almost “normal” performances under 3G, 2G and/or 2G+ at the beginning of the season, when quite a few already thought they were at the end of the pandemic tunnel. Now we are once again in the midst of a huge wave, which we hope to weather well together!

Nevertheless, the year 2021 brought many rays of hope that strengthened us in our actions, inspired us to new plans and brought us together with new partners – the latter often virtually, but time and again also analogue and personally. First and foremost, of course, were the wonderful concerts that took place, especially in the second half of the year: the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, which has been delighting international concert audiences for 40 years now, returned to the Berlin Philharmonie with Sir András Schiff, as did Teodor Currentzis and musicAeterna, who, as usual, “made the Phlharmonie quake”, as the Tagesspiegel Berlin commented. Iván Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra and the Freiburger Barockorchester provided fantastic concert experiences, as did the La Folia Barockorchester and the Finnish Baroque Orchestra, the Oberon Trio, the Berlin StegreifOrchester and the Belgian choir Vox Luminis.

Life within the agency also provided ample opportunity to keep moving: In mid-June we moved into a larger and even nicer office within our Schöneberg neighbourhood, which is also almost completely furnished by the end of the year 😉 We like our new website at least as much, which we were able to launch at the beginning of December. 

Before we start our Christmas holidays, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Our office will be closed between 23 December 2021 and 03 January 2022.
