Win Tickets to a Debussy Concert

Recently I had an interesting conversation with a young “lady” about classical music. The conversation took place in a club on a Sunday afternoon. This girl has been living in Berlin for more than 8 years; in that time she thoroughly got into the city’s nightlife. When we talked about classical music, she told me that she really enjoys it, but that she never made it into the Philharmonie or Konzerthaus. In 8 years. Why not? “Because it is so expensive”, she told me.

This prejudice is actually quite common – and it is just not true. Tickets for Philharmonie, Konzerthaus and to all Berlin opera houses start at 15 Euros, sometimes even less. So the entrance fee to Konzerthaus and Philharmonie is just as high as the entrance fee to Berghain – and much cheaper than to many pop and rock concerts.

Tickets for one of the best piano recitals of this year start at this exact amount. I am talking about Jean-Yves Thibaudet playing Debussy at Konzerthaus on October 8, 2013. And for this concert we are even giving away 2 tickets – after the jump.

The concert on October 8, 2013 features an all-Debussy program; for more information about the composer, check out this wonderful video:

Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who is performing some of Debussy’s most important works on October 8, is actually one of the best pianists to play this kind of music. Not only because he is also French but just because he is a great pianist. As I said: this is definitely one of this year’s best piano recitals in Berlin. For tickets and more information check out the Konzerthaus website.

We are giving away 2 tickets for this concert. To win, send an email to jens{at)iheartberlin(.)de and tell me your favorite restaurant in Berlin (I need tips). The raffle ends on October 7 at noon. Good luck!
