With its unique structure, Unerhörte Musik is an established part of the Berlin music life and enjoys an excellent reputation far beyond the borders of Berlin or Germany as the first address for the contemporary music scene. The row was founded in 1989 by Rainer Rubbert and Martin Daske and since then has been funded with means of the Berlin Culture Senate.
Every Tuesday soloists and ensembles play contemporary programs with focus on the music of the ending 20th and 21st century in the relaxed atmosphere of the BKA Theater. In more than 900 concerts so far more than 1000 premieres have taken place.
Although it is mainly a platform for professional musicians living in Berlin, also famous ensembles from other cities in Germany or from other countries perform at Unerhörte Musik. Nevertheless, they are required to introduce works of Berlin composers in their concerts. Besides interprets specialized on new music, Unerhörte Musik also gives an opportunity to famous soloists to realize programs for which the established concert market doesn’t find space. Therefore, the series has become a point of intersection for the whole Berlin new music scene: For interprets, composers, musicians that have recently moved to Berlin and the audience interested in music in the same time.
