My daughter, violinist Lir Vaginsky (16) came to me when she was 10 years old and asked if she could also perform in one of my chamber music concerts. she asked repeatedly...
It occurred to me that I didn't know any venues in Berlin that offer this opportunity to young musicians. I decided to start promoting the idea of creating such a concert series.
Prelude Concerts, an ensemble of wonderful artists who perform alongside extremely talented young musicians was born in 2015.
Through the mutual work, sometimes only on a single movement, comes incredible learning, experience and joy on all sides.
Prelude Concerts is a Berlin-based concert series, a non-profit organization with the goal to perform classical chamber music, jazz, and other musical styles and at the same time to promote developing young musicians.
The project includes Family and Evening concerts with internationally renowned guest artists who perform alongside the Prelude Concerts ensemble. The Family concert offers a special theme introduced by the moderator Andres Peer Kähler.
A younger audience is invited to listen and think through an interactive musical adventure. The Evening concert has a full program with intermission. Each concert features a young talented artist “in residence” alongside the ensemble players.
