After the pandemic upended everyone’s world last year and Young Euro Classic could only take place in a downsized version, the festival is back in full force this year, once again welcoming the most talented youth orchestras worldwide. To conform with local hygiene regulations, concerts will have a maximum length of 70 minutes and no intermission. Furthermore, only 60 musicians can be placed on the stage in the main auditorium, thereby affecting the repertoire as monumental orchestral works have to give way for more compact classical and romantic works. Concerts will take place at the Konzerthaus Berlin as usual, but to accommodate hygiene regulations they will be broadcasted to a live audience outside at Gendarmenmarkt.

EuroArts will produce five concerts, three of which will be aired on Arte Concert, and two on Deutsche Welle. A 60minute highlight version will be available for TV distribution later this year.
