The Orania.Concert Experience

 

Concerts in Berlin - by Berliners for guests from all over the world

In the middle of Kreuzberg a new venue has been established: on Tuesdays and Thursdays musicians who have found their home in Berlin come together at Orania.Berlin. The concert program is developed by the French pianist Julien Quentin who has found his home in Kreuzberg ten years ago. The events are as varied and open as the venue: internationally performing artists such as Víkingur Ólafsson, Camille Thomas, Rosanne Philippens and Francesco Tristano already thrilled the audience. In addition, electroacoustic experiments unfold a musical attraction. The series is complemented by Marc Schmolling who is responsible for the jazz program.

 

Artistic Director Julien Quentin

The French pianist Julien Quentin impresses with soulful virtuosity and impressive musical maturity which he developed, among others, in Paris, Geneva and New York. While he gained a lot of festival experience as a soloist with various Philharmonic orchestras and sold out almost every international arena on tour with David Garrett, chamber music remains his great passion. He previously shared the stage with stars of the classical music scene - for example Sol Gabbetta, Gautier Capuçon, Andreas Ottensamer or Sayaka Shoj. At Orania.Berlin he can enjoy this passion to the fullest.

Marc Schmolling: Curator of the Orania.Jazz Series

Marc Schmolling has pure creativity in his blood - his mother was one of the leading figures of the Prague literary scene in the 1960s. However, he prefers music to writing and studied at the world-famous Richard Strauss Conservatory in Munich with Larry Porter and Titian Jost. Marc Schmolling has lived in Berlin since 2006 where he pursues his passion for jazz music in various musical projects.

He brings the most talented Berlin jazz artists on stage and is also part of the musical program himself.
