The final Kiezsalon of this year’s programme takes us to Charlottenburg’s Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche. A poignant landmark, and a visible reminder of Berlin’s history, the remains of the original nineteenth-century church sit between the honeycomb structures of the modern memorial church.
Anna von Hausswolff is a musician and composer performing on pipe organs all over the world. Her polyrhythmic sound is often distinguished by fluid transitions between calmness and drama, harmony and dissonance, with various overlapping elements.
Anna has written and released five full-length albums including the celebrated solo pipe organ album ‘All Thoughts Fly’ (2020). Anna was invited by Nils Frahm to perform his curated event ‘Possibly Colliding‘ at the Barbican and by David Byrne to perform at his curated Meltdown festival at Southbank Centre. Her soundtrack for the documentary ‘The Most Beautiful Boy In The World’ has been nominated for an award for Sundance Film Festival 2021.
A wonder of design with almost 6,000 pipes, the organ at Gedächtsniskirche – a significant work of Karl Schuke – is one of the largest in the city, and it will be the centrepiece of a very special Kiezsalon 2021 finale.
