One of the world’s very best orchestras, the Berlin Philharmonic is blessed with an acoustically near-perfect, if distinctively ugly, concert hall. British Conductor Simon Rattle became resident conductor in 2002. Since then he has created a distinctive sound based on well-executed new interpretations of more modern composers. The Kammermusiksaal, a smaller chamber inside the building, produces high-quality, but more low-key, performances and it’s often easier to get a ticket. Tickets start at €8 and go all the way up to €150, a range that reflects the mixed crowd that spans the gamut, from students to well-heeled connoisseurs.
