Classic Goes Clubbing ...


Andreas Kern created the critically acclaimed "arte lounge" for the French-German TV channel

Arte in 2009. In addition to featuring world-renowned stars, the show offers a platform for

cross-over artists and performers from other genres.


As the show's artistic director and co-host, Andreas Kern has performed with musicians

including Renaud Capucon, Sol Gabetta, Vadim Repin, Sarah Chang, Maurice Steger,

Mischa Maisky, Elina Garanca, and many others.


The "arte lounge" was nominated for the prestigious Grimme Award in 2011.
