Breaking: A live concert tonight from Berlin

Deutsche Grammophon has organised a boutique concert.

Deutsche Grammophon would like to share the news that tonight we will live-stream a special concert by Konzerthaus Berlin and rbbKultur for you, on our YouTube and Facebook channels. Our wonderful artists Daniel Hope, Lang Lang – 郎朗, Avi Avital, Max Raabe and others will perform stunning chamber repertoire in an intimate setting with a maximum of 2-3 musicians on stage at a time. The arts have always played a vital role in times of crisis, and tonight our friends – our artists, will also express solidarity with all fellow freelance musicians who are currently unable to perform live for their fans and who may therefore be facing hardship.

Who wants to review it for Slipped Disc?


  • Mike says:

    The last thing I need right now is Lang Lang, Daniel Hope and God forbid Igor Levit tirelessly self promoting.

  • Elvira says:

    Looking forward!!!

  • RW2013 says:

    I’m sure one of those Brummie gents would gladly contribute some of their gobbledigook.

    • Dee Miner says:

      agreed – they do write utter balderdash, to the point that one wonders if they pay much attention to the poor musicians on stage. The already dying art of music criticism is finally killed off by their words.

    • Christopher Clift says:

      Any ‘Brummie gent’ you have in mind RW?

  • Clarrieu says:

    I regret to say it starts with a dreadful Mendelssohn Spinning Song by Lang Lang…

  • Fred says:

    I hope Lang Lang can cut down on the emotive gyrations. His playing could be too infectious in a chamber music setting.
