"Jazz in the Garden III" concert series at the Neue Nationalgalerie


A playlist, inspired by the legendary concert series Jazz in the Garden, which took place in the Sculpture Garden of the Neue Nationalgalerie from the inauguration of the museum in the late 1960s until the 1990s.

Most people are unaware of the fact that the Neue Nationalgalerie was long the venue for legendary concerts. At the museum’s inauguration on 15 September 1968, a jazz band performed amongst the sculptures of Auguste Renoir, Henri Laurens and Gerhard Marcks in the sunken garden of the Mies van der Rohe building.
