Since its foundation in 2008, the Berlin Camerata represents high-quality classical music for sophisticated connoisseurs. This young, internationally staffed orchestra is directed by the exceptional violinist Olga Pak.
The self-conception of the Camerata is that of a union shaped by the different contributions of its musicians. The orchestra aims at giving each of its members the possibility to influence the artistic process at anytime – be it in a programmatic way by suggesting new compositions for the repertory or by taking over a solo part. This way of working allows for individual progress in mutual artistic inspiration. It is what distinguishes the Berlin Camerata from many other orchestras.
The orchestra’s repertory comprises popular classical pieces as well as modern compositions. It seeks to pass on its enthusiams for classical music to both, adepts and novices to the classical world.
In the past years, the orchestra established itself on two levels: On the one hand, the increasing number of concerts enabled the Camerata to tie a number of regulars to themselves.
In addition to its own concert series in Berlin (Philharmonie), in Hamburg (Laeiszhalle) in Bremen (The bell) and from 2014 in Leipzig (Gewandhaus), the Orchestra is also the organizer of the “Berliner Klassiksommer”.
Guest performances in Gasteig Munich, the Liederhalle Stuttgart and many other prestigious concert halls of Germany are regularly on the program of the ensemble. On international tours, the orchestra breathes new life into the European classical operation.t. The Rising-Star Series is also worth mentioning: This series brings together the Berlin Camerata with aspiring talents of the classical music scene.
