The Philharmonie has been the musical heart of Berlin for more than 50 years. At the opening in 1963, still located on the periphery of West Berlin, it became part of the new urban center after reunification.
Since the opening concert under the direction of Herbert von Karajan, the Berliner Philharmoniker, together with great conductors and soloists, have given their audience many magnificent concerts. In October 2013, the orchestra and its chief conductor Sir Simon Rattle celebrated the 50th anniversary of the hall with three very different concerts, which brought out the special acoustic possibilities of the Philharmonie impressivel.
