BERLIN OPERA CHAMBER ORCHESTRA

After joining the two Chamber groups, Kammerensemble Classic der Deutschen Oper Berlin (founded in 1992) and the Kammerensemble modern der Deutschen Oper Berlin (founded in 2004), the BERLIN OPERA CHAMBER ORCHESTRA was created in the beginning of 2013.

Through the combination of both Ensembles as well as the addition of musicians from other Berlin Orchestras gives the possibility of a largely varied repertoire. Many members of BOCO consist of  some of the best and most talented young artists of our time that are living in Berlin and are finished with their studies  The Orchestra is committed to be instrumentally involved in the large group of the up and coming musicians in order to help this “next generation” of soloists.

The large spectrum of this orchestra allows them the full palate of music from Baroque to modern music. They will concentrate in rediscovering forgotten composers from Europe as well as giving light to the seldom played modern music.  BOCO is particularly interested in the programming of the great European repertoire, which is part of our musical heritage, and in the continuation of the great composers, those that are not so eagerly played in the most prestigious concert halls.The core of the repertoire will be Opera and Zarzuelas literature, such as Overtures, Concert arias, and other works with soloists and singers.

The Kammerensemble Modern as already four CD recordings.  Two are from the cycle “Kland der Welt”, one has pieces from Spanish composers,  one from composers from Brasil, one is a CD Monographic from Pilar Jurado called “Los Silencios de la Luna” and the fourth is “Live in Madrid”, recorded in the “Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando” with Spanish and German composers.

The Kammerensemble Classic has already two CD recordings with a variety of Arias and Overtures.  “Rare Verdi” (Grammy Award Nominated)  und „Drei Dichter“  were produced by MSM London.The BOCO leads its cycle of the concert season in two halls, the Jesus Christ Church, where for six decades the best orchestras, choirs, international soloists and conductors for the best leading record companies such as Deutsche Grammophon, EMI, DECCA, Philips Classics The Chamber Music Hall of the Berliner Philharmonie, one of the most important musical venues of the capital par excellence of classical music, performs and guest performances in Germany, Spain and Italy.
