2024 insights

The year starts con brio in the Berliner Philharmonic Hall with the Gala concert of the Spectrum Concerts Berlin series with Janine Jansen, Boris Brovtsin, Torleif Thedéen, Jens Peter Maintz, Sasha Sitkovetsky, and Gareth Lubbe. Hartmut Rohde will perform viola concertos by Carl Maria von Weber and Cecil Forsyth and Alessandro Rolla further in the year. Tours will take him to Korea, Ireland, Romania, Italy and the USA. He will be conducting the chamber orchestra of the University of the Arts Berlin with works surrounding the Wiener Schule by Arnold Schoenberg. He looks forward to several invitations for masterclasses in festivals such as Ljubljana, Sion, London, and the USA. In October he is artistic director of the international Max Rostal competition in Berlin for violin and viola.

Highlights 2023

Naming a few highlights of 2023: Hartmut Rohde conducted the Orchestre de Berlin in the Musikhalle Hamburg and Konzerthaus Berlin, featuring Brahms 3rd Symphony, Mozart “Entführung aus dem Serail”, Haydn Cello Concert D major with Cellist Jens Peter Maintz, and Ursula Mamloks symphonic piece “Constellations”, written for the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and Herbert Blomstedt. Further he performed Harold in Italy by Berlioz with the Hofer Symphoniker, being solo Violist of the Seoul International Music Festival Orchestra as well as launching his own new Music Festival in Brandenburg, the “Rhinluch Festival”, bringing together internationale prize winners for chamber music and orchestra concerts.

Berlin – Oxford – Naantali – Prades – Jerusalem – Seoul

After a diversified year of conducting in the Hamburg Musikhalle, Vienna Konzerthaus, the Klaipeda Festival and Sao Paolo (among others), new collaborations with the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra and Seoul Virtuosi are currently being planned. In London, Hartmut Rohde will premiere the viola concerto written by Philip Sawyers with the English Symphony Orchestra during their 20/21 season. Performances at the Intonation Festival Berlin, Jerusalem Festival, as well as the Casals Festival in Prades allow him to make music with dear friends such as Arto Noras, Ralph and Mark Gothoni, Elena Bashkirova, and Michael Barenboim.

In addition to concerts in Germany, notable events for the Mozart Piano Quartet include appearances in Oxford, at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, and at the Seoul Arts Center. Two exciting CD releases are expected for the spring of 2020: Hans Gál, concerto for piano and string orchestra and his impromptu for viola and piano (Gottlieb Wallisch, piano – Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra Budapest, Hartmut Rohde, conductor) as well as Gabriel Fauré’s two piano quintets with the Mozart Piano Quartet and Régis Pasquier (Quintet op. 89) and Sashiko Segawa (Quintet op. 115).
