Nov. 15, 2022


Two weeks of “Out of Joint” – Visionary works building bridges between eras, musicians responding to a world out of kilter and formats that disrupt the normal concert hall routine.

“These are sounds you wouldn’t know could exist.”

Six pianos microtonally detuned against each other, a dark, vacant hall, 51 musicians – On 18.11.22 the Konzerthausorchester Berlin with Jonathan Stockhammer will be the fourth orchestra worldwide to play “limited approximations”. The 2010 composition by Georg Friedrich Haas with a unique, acoustically exciting instrumentation at the #AusDenFugen festival in the empty, darkened Great Hall. With two other “unheard-of” works, you can expect a “sound rush continuum” over five centuries this evening.

A workshop for everyone – Audience and orchestra will be swapping places on 19.11.22! During a symphony concert in the Great Hall, have you ever wondered how the Konzerthausorchester actually manages to play together so perfectly? What do the conductor and individual musicians of the various instrument groups contribute? A successful orchestral performance is based on listening to each other and deriving a multi-voiced articulation together. You can literally experience this first-hand in our workshop – even without any previous musical knowledge. To begin with, the Konzerthausorchester under conductor Jonathan Stockhammer will play an excerpt from Beethoven’s “Eroica”. In a moderated discussion, the musicians and conductor will demonstrate what skills are needed to perform together. Then it’s your turn!
