  • A Note on the Vineyard Style | Stanford Live
    small houses If Scharoun s description of his conception betrayed the formation of his thinking in prewar culture it also made a strong statement about the significance of the Philharmonie as a democratic symbol in the postwar period The mayor of West Berlin Willy Brandt noted in the speech he gave at the consecration that the hall had been planned before the Iron Curtain had gone up in 1961 This building he said is built facing the fellow citizens in the other half of the city And this will prove to be correct more than ever when the wall no longer exists Here we have the two realities of the city Here we have the courage and spirit that guide our path forward Comprehending music in sociopolitical terms formed a central concern of prewar German writers such as the music critic Paul Bekker and it is hard to imagine that Scharoun was not familiar with Bekker s books and articles which were widely read at the time For Bekker who promoted classical music s socially formative power there was one work in particular that embodied that power Beethoven s Ninth Symphony The 1963 inaugural concert at the Philharmonie featured a performance of the Ninth conducted by Herbert von Karajan No piece of music before or since lent such engaging expression to the community ideal that lay at the heart of Bekker s critical writings on the symphony as a genre and at the same time inspired his vision of the concert hall of the future In Das deutsche Musikleben German Musical Life 1916 probably his best known and most widely disseminated publication Bekker offered the following account of how the terms underpinning his sociological interpretation of Beethoven s symphony would translate into a spatial conception What the concert hall should be in terms of what it offers us and in how the society that brings it to life is composed the expansion and consolidation of church and community center in the modern era that is something the concert hall should be in and of itself as a space informing the layout of the architectural design The orchestra should not be placed at a remove as is usual nowadays inserted into a niche that was originally foreign to the spatial design idea It must form like the sanctuary of the church the center and goal of the whole structure In his reaction to Bekker s book fellow critic Artur Bogen described the ideas about concert hall architecture in a way that as the Bekker scholar Andreas Eichhorn has suggested uncannily anticipates Scharoun s own design Thought provoking too are your observations about the music building of the future i e concert hall An architect it seems to me should make an attempt to design a space in which the orchestra is arranged completely differently from before namely freely in the middle of the room perhaps with an elliptical vault the orchestra would then form the focal point For the orchestra to
