In 1905, Maurice Ravel received a pretty unusual commission: Érard, a leading manufacturer of pianos and pedal harps, ordered a composition from him for its new, fully chromatic harp. It goes without saying that this was a very appealing proposition for the master of transparent and refined instrumentation in the French style. Ravel's »Introduction and Allegro« inevitably became a kind of counterpart to Debussy's »Danse sacrée et profane«, which the latter had likewise written for a harp builder – in this case, for Érard's competitor Pleyel. Was it due to Ravel's work that it was the Érard model of harp that caught on in the future?

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.
