Piano Salon Christophori (II)


Everyone familiar with the place will be unsurprised to hear that the informal salon evenings at Piano Salon Christophori go on surprising and delighting: In mid-September Kotaro Fukuma and Misa Suzuki presented a lighthearted two-piano concert, with Misa insouciantly pausing in her playing to turn pages in Mr Fukuma's score; later in the month, somehandssomehands did more in less, playing three to an instrument.

Friday's program features a single player - Madalina Pasol - alongside Tanja Simic, a mezzo straight out of New York. The concerts have, in my mind, taken on an added poignancy and potential urgency with the news that the building in which they're housed has been sold. No concrete threat yet that the Piano Salon Christophori will be evicted, but it makes me prize these evenings all the more. More details here.


Wonderful recommendation! I am new to Berlin and took two friends along. The setting is enchanting as was the music. Thank you for your blog - I'm enjoying the fact that it opens up the many possibilities that Berlin has to offer.

Yvonne, I'm so pleased! All the best as you go on discovering Berlin, and I'd love to hear about your finds.
