BOOK 'Berlin: The Age of Enlightenment ' HERE

What makes Berlin a musical city? Is it because it has 'the world's finest orchestra', or the greatest numer of world-class opera houses in one city, or the most diverse alternative music scene? Is it, perhaps, all three? Or maybe none?
In the next Aspect concert, Norman Lebrecht will discuss what it takes to be a music capital and how Berlin went from garrison town to cultural hub. The history is more complicated than it seems. Some would argue that Berlin only achieved centrality thanks to its Wall. 
Mahan Esfahani explores Berlin's musical origins from the roots up: from Frederick the Great's musical consolations, the musicians and great minds that he gathered around him, and the ones he drove away. Where was JS Bach when Germany really needed him?
