Debüt at Deutschlandfunk Kultur
The “Debüt im Deutschlandfunk Kultur” belongs to the concert series that are most steeped in tradition of public radio in Germany. Founded in 1959 by the broadcasting company of the American sector (RIAS), the orchestra concerts in the first decades ran under the title "RIAS introduces". Since 1988/89 chamber concerts have also been a part of the established profile of the series.
The list of the debutants who were invited to Berlin before they became world-famous is long. Jacqueline Du Pré and Daniel Barenboim (both in 1963), Jessye Norman (1969) and Simon Rattle (1977), Jewgenij Kissin (1987) and Cecilia Bartoli (1988). Even now we try to secure those artists from the multiplicity of young talents for the debut concert who have a convincing and characteristic voice as well as virtuosity.
Musical promotion of young people doesn’t just take place on the stage. Before every "Debüt" –night we give the opportunity to numerous students of schools in Berlin to look into the contents of the particular concert under the guidance of music students. In the ideal case they not only marvel at the "stars", but gain an insight into creative processes.
“Debüt im Deutschlandfunk Kultur” not only reaches the Berlin concert audience but is also broadcast all over Germany.
