In Hebrew »Nima« means the string of an instrument, while in Tibetan it means sun. In this spirit, the Nima Quartet performs two of the most radiant pieces in the repertoire of chamber music for strings. »I can find no words of admiration intense enough to express the emotion that an artistic soul must feel on hearing this music«, Vincent d’Indy enthused about the slow movement of Beethoven's op. 127. He could equally well have been referring to the String Quintet, which the overwhelming majority of musicians regards a the greatest chamber work of all time.

The Rolf-Liebermann-Studio was a Jewish temple until 1938. Destroyed in the Pogrom Night, ownership of the current Rolf-Liebermann-Studio passed over to the city authorities in 1941, and later to the former Northwest German Broadcasting, which arranged its conversion into a large concert hall. With its classical music concerts, readings, matinees and jazz concerts, the studio is one of the first ports of call for the culturally aware today.
