More than 50 works by around 40 composers will be presented in 27 events at the Philharmonie, its chamber music hall, the Konzerthaus Berlin, the Haus der Berliner Festspiele and the Kirche Am Hohenzollernplatz, performed by 33 orchestras and numerous soloists from Berlin and abroad.

Each year in late summer, the Berliner Festspiele Orchestra Festival marks the spectacular start of the Berlin concert season.
Top international orchestras, instrumental and vocal ensembles, together with the major symphony orchestras of the city of Berlin, present an ambitious festival program, each with a different thematic focus.

Highlight of the Musikfest Berlin

- Great orchestras, vocal and instrumental ensembles and many soloists
- Famous stars and promising newcomers
- Current premieres and first performances
- International co-productions

Along with opera, theater and cinema, the orchestra is one of the most complex, largest and most multifaceted "machines" that Western culture has produced for the production of performances and emotions. The variety of orchestral formations that exist today has expanded significantly under the influence of modern technologies and with knowledge of historical performance practices. The festival, which lasts about three weeks, is therefore dedicated not only to the symphonic repertoire, but in particular to the significant, rare, forgotten, unusual and new works from history and the present.

The Musikfest Berlin sees itself as a forum for the innovative artistic work of the major orchestras and ensembles of international musical life.

The music festival is organized by the Berliner Festspiele in cooperation with the Berliner Philharmoniker Foundation.
