Ed­i­tor’s Note

Where Berlin - - CONTENTS -

It's back-to-school sea­son, prob­a­bly my fa­vorite time of year. New clothes, new sup­plies, and the clean slate af­ter the sum­mer va­ca­tion all bring new op­por­tu­ni­ties for a fresh start. Ev­ery Septem­ber, I'm in­spired to draft new projects, my cre­ativ­ity is at its max­i­mum lev­els, and my desk be­comes a huge pile of to-do, to-cook, to-write, to-try, and to-learn lists that en­com­pass the whole year ahead. It's also back to work for all of Berlin's mu­si­cians, as Septem­ber marks the start of the new mu­si­cal sea­son. While opera singers clear their throats and vi­o­lin­ists rosin their bows, Ber­lin­ers and vis­i­tors con­sult the city's con­cert pro­grams and buy tickets to fa­vorite per­fo­mances. To re­mind us all of this new start, from 3 to 20 Septem­ber the an­nual Musik­fest brings the best per­form­ers of Berlin's top or­ches­tras to the stages of the Phil­har­monie and Konz­erthaus to cel­e­brate the Ger­man cap­i­tal's mu­si­cal legacy.
