With almost 450 years of history and tradition under its belt, Staatskapelle Berlin is one of the oldest orchestras in the world. Originally founded as a court orchestra by Prince-Elector Joachim II of Brandenburg in 1570, the ensemble expanded its activities with the founding of the Royal Court Opera in 1742 by Frederick the Great. Ever since then, the orchestra has been closely tied to Staatsoper Unter den Linden.
Daniel Barenboim will lead the Staatskapelle Berlin, which he has been in charge of many years, to bring the complete set of Brahms symphony to the Beijing audience, as well as the symphony of Schubert and Beethoven. Daniel Barenboim was born in Buenos Aires in 1942. He received his first piano lessons from his mother at age five. His international debut came at age ten with concerts in Vienna and Rome, and he has since gone on to spend his career performing around the world with some of the world's best orchestras.
