Biography

The German Chamber Orchestra of Berlin was founded in the autumn of 1989 in the spirit of German reunifi cation. In the more than 25 years of its existence it has established itself as a core player on the Berlin music and arts scene. Having recently undergone a rejuvenation of its membership, it now
refl ects the atmosphere of modern-day Berlin under the artistic director and fi rst concertmaster Gabriel Adorján: musicians from both sides of the formerly divided city have joined together with international colleagues to form an ensemble which has a loyal following thanks to its enthusiasm for the new and its commitment to music. The DKO’s repertoire ranges from works of the Baroque through to contemporary compositions, with the classical canon forming the core and contemporary works offering a stimulating contrast. One of the orchestra’s concerns is to attract attention to works at the edge of the traditional concert repertoire spectrum. Conductors such as Markus Poschner, Christian Jost, Michael Helmrath, Philippe Jordan and Simon Halsey have all taken the rostrum to direct the DKO. Internationally renowned guest soloists have included Daniel Hope, Nigel Kennedy, Ben Becker, Lucas und Arthur Jussen, Anna Prohaska, Martin Helmchen, Avi Avital, Maximilian Hornung, Asya Fateyeva, Matthias Kirschnereit, David Orlowsky and Baiba Skride. The orchestra has recorded CDs, among others, for the Deutsche Grammophon label featuring Daniel Hope, Albrecht Mayer, the Radio Choir of Berlin and also with Liv Migdal and Annika Treutler.
