Many orchestras have members that split off to form chamber ensembles, but the 12 Cellists of the Berlin Philharmonic, founded half a century ago, are truly one of a kind. In this case, the chamber orchestra was not formed from musicians playing a variety of instruments, but 12 identical ones. Their sound is homogenous yet vibrant given that the instruments can play the same note in a variety of octaves, while the orchestra's repertoire can be extended indefinitely as there is so much potential for new arrangements, and the standard of the legendary ensemble is worthy of its parent orchestra's name in every respect.

Program and cast

Müpa Budapest

When Müpa Budapest, Hungary and its capital's new cultural hub, opened in 2005, it was built to represent more than 100 years of Hungarian cultural history. As a conglomeration of cultural venues, the building has no precedent in 20th century Hungarian architecture and has no peers in the whole of Central Europe.


The creators of this ambitious project, the Trigránit Development Corporation, prime contractor Arcadom Construction and the Zoboki, Demeter and Partners Architectural Office, were driven by the desire to create a new European cultural citadel as part of the new Millennium City Centre complex along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Danube waterfront. The result is a facility whose construction quality, appearance, functionality and 21st century technological infrastructure makes it ideally suited to productions of the highest standard. The building is also highly versatile and equipped to host performances of any genre and almost any scale.
