For Jörg Widmann, the Pierre Boulez Saal and the Barenboim-Said Akademie have become a kind of home away from home: he is closely associated with the institutions as composer, clarinetist, and teacher. More than reason enough to put him center stage for this year’s Open House on April 27: from 10 am to 4 pm, his work can be explored from many different perspectives in all parts of the building, for free. Join us for a full day to listen, watch, and discover!
Casalot Catering provides freshly prepared Arabic snacks throughout the day.
