The resident city of the Camerata Europæa is uniquely positioned in the centre of European history. Following a period of rapid expansion, the Third Reich, separation into four military zones by the allied forces - ater to become East and West - Berlin is now a unified, but culturally still exceptionally diverse metropolis. The contemporary music that is inspired by Berlin’s unique European atmosphere can be made accessible to the audiences throughout the European Union. more
With this deliberately open motto the Camerata Europæa takes the opportunity to assume a position on current issues and musical themes, as well as to add a musical dimension to the cultural celebrations and festivals within the European Union. Thus topics can now be addressed within the context of Polyphonic Europe such as the status of European art music, or a provocative comparison can be drawn between the concepts of antiquity and postmodernism. more
Europe’s diversity is visible not only in its different nations, languages and cultural traditions, but also in its religious manifestations. With this concert series the Camerata Europæa wishes to trace the spirituality of European art music for symphony orchestras and inspire audiences with the messages contributed to the European idea by the different religions.
At the same time the series offers a broad scope for thoughts and associations that go beyond the religious beliefs. The link between music with religion, ethics, esoterism, mysticism, transcendence, and meditation creates a relaxed atmosphere to experience the spirituality in Europe: the possibility to remember, to dream, and to come closer to harmony in life.
The Camerata Europæa unites music across borders with other art forms and musical genres to render the contemporary music more appealing and capture the enthusiasm of the audience. The question is, how can light, sculptures, architecture, pictures, multi media, fashion and other forms of art be introduced into a room to create a special atmosphere during a concert, thereby appealing to other senses and enabling an audience to listen to a concert with more 'relaxed' hearing. more
The European Union also aims to provide young people in particular with the opportunity to develop their creative potential within the context of an orchestral project. In the Spring Day for Europe series, highly gifted young musicians and soloists are invited to develop and perform selected concert programmes with the Camerata Youth. The concept is based on the Spring Campaign of the European institutions, which encourages young people to discuss and reflect on the basic principles. more
