Intonations 2024

07. - 09. June


Intonations 2024 will happen on the first weekend of June, from the 7th to the 9th. There will be five concerts over the three day festival with musicians such as Igor Levit, Dorothea Röschmann, Elisabeth Leonskaja, Gérard Caussé, Dietrich Henschel, Madeleine Carruzzo, Emmanuel Pahud, and more joining Elena Bashkirova at the KühlhausBerlin for a weekend of chamber music.

The theme of the festival this year is 'Emigrant Composers.' Throughout history, many composers have left their homeland to settle in new places, where they have made significant contributions to music history. Whether fleeing political persecution, in search of better economic opportunities or simply to travel - composers have crossed borders, oceans and continents. In their new homelands, many merged their native musical idioms with those of their new adopted country and created impressive testimonies to the universal musical language.

The expulsion of composers in the twentieth century due to political and religious persecution played a special role in the history of music. Gustav Mahler, Igor Stravinsky, Arnold Schönberg, Hanns Eisler and Erich Wolfgang Korngold, to name but a few, fled to the United States, where they made a significant contribution to the development of contemporary American music. Financial incentives and professional opportunities, on the other hand, prompted musical greats such as Antonín Dvořák, George Enescu and Bohuslav Martinů to travel. At this year's edition of "Intonations", the musical contributions of all these great composers, will be heard and honored.

About the venue


Luckenwalder Straße 3

10963 Berlin


Once a cold storage facility, the landmark building KühlhausBerlin is now a vibrant space for cultural events and regularly hosts concerts, mounts art exhibitions, craft fairs, plant sales and more. 

Its concert hall is known as the cube: floors one through three of the building were opened up, so that there is a stage and audience seating level on the first floor, and open galleries with a view onto the stage on the second and third.
