The Digital Guides provide interesting details and connections. With the help of this multimedia offer, the Musikfest Berlin illuminates its programme from new perspectives, conveys overarching ideas and provides information about backgrounds worth knowing. Artists’ talks, the long version of which can be found as a video in the Berliner Festspiele Mediathek, complete the offer.

Music and Society
In the first of two Digital Guides to the 2022 Musikfest Berlin, we will take composers Florence Price, Liza Lim and Ludwig van Beethoven as examples to explore the manifold entanglements of music and society. How did Afro-American artists of the 1930s build networks? Are humans and the environment much more closely intertwined than is often assumed? And when did the separation of music and religion begin?
Bridges Made of Sound
Music and Rite
Our second Digital Guide to the 2022 Musikfest Berlin focuses on sacred music from Christian and Confucian contexts. What social relevance can ritual music have? How can the textual interpretation of religious scriptures be shaped musically? And can a work devoted to Mary also promote one’s career?
