Barenboim-Said Akademie's Pierre Boulez Saal opens in March 2017

The Pierre Boulez Saal, a chamber music hall designed by architect Frank Gehry, will open in March 2017 in Berlin as the public face of the Barenboim-Said Akademie. The hall will enrich the cultural life of Berlin, presenting “music for the thinking ear.”

The hall features an intimate performance atmosphere, and will offer a musically diverse program that combines outstanding works of traditional chamber music from the 19th and 20th centuries and today, with unique compositions from the Middle East, as well as guest appearances by some of the world’s finest musicians.

The Barenboim-Said Akademie – an educational institution that expands upon the vision of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra – offers students from all over the Middle East exemplary instruction in music alongside study in the humanities.
