Although too often neglected by Berlin’s historians and biographers, music has been just as central as art, film and architecture in the formation of the German capital’s unique identity.

In Berlin Sampler, Théo Lessour plugs the reader into the city’s musical life – tracing with verve and savvy over one hundred years of musical works made-in-Berlin and the events that shaped them.
