CIRCLE1 is pleased to host Quartet Berlin-Tokyo, playing works by Beethoven, Haydn and Kurtág.
The Quartet Berlin-Tokyo was founded in 2011 by students of the two conservatories in Berlin. Only a few months later they celebrated initial success at the ARD International Music Competition in Munich, winning a special Prize. Since then the quartet won numerous competitions including the Carl Nielsen Competition in Copenhagen, the prestigious Franz Schubert Competition in Graz, Young Concert Artist in New York, the Orlando Competition in Holland and others.

CIRCLE1 is pleased to host the Grammy-nominated mandolinist Avi Avital and Ostinato Ensemble Berlin, playing The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivladi and Hanjale by Syrian composer Kareem Roustom.
Acknowledged by The New York Times for his “exquisitely sensitive playing” and “stunning agility”, Grammy-nominated mandolinist Avi Avital is one of the world’s most exciting and adventurous musicians. He is deeply committed to building a fresh legacy for the mandolin through virtuosic performance in a range of genres and commissioning new works for mandolin.
In the gallery’s space in our current show we are displaying the exhibition STRATA by
artists Yosef Joseph Yaakov Dadoune, Nezaket Ekici, Shahar Marcus and Robert Stieghorst, curated by Drorit Gur Arie
