»Konzerthaus – Hope@9pm«

Daniel Hope is a classical music star. The violinist fills the largest concerts hall all over the world with ease. At Berlin’s Konzerthaus, a new concept is being developed, inspired by the Berlin salons of former times: it is Daniel Hope’s most intimate concert format so far. It demands a staging which allows the Konzerthaus to appear as personal a space as Hope’s living-room. Just with hundreds of guests added.

The strict division between artist and audience is broken up mercilessly, bringing both together. Risers delineate two stages in the midst of the space. Between these two stages, the audience watches – and listens – while seated at tables, giving the evening a private, casual feeling. The stage modules rise up in steps around the audience, lending the space some tension and movement. Standard lamps throughout the entire space break up the familiar format of the artist in the spotlight. Within the atmosphere of a modern living-room, the host is brought closer to his guests. Mirrors multiply the impression of the private space, allowing a special atmosphere to enter via the windows: the flair of Berlin’s historic Gendarmenmarkt square.
