Workshop für alle: Publikum und Konzerthausorchester begegnen sich auf Augenhöhe
Publikum Konzerthausorchester Berlin Sarah Ioannides Conductor Leonie Hentschel Host / Presenter Dorothee Kalbhenn Host / Presenter
Nikolai Rimski-Korsakow „Scheherazade“ - Sinfonische Suite op. 35 1.Satz

Do you ever wonder during a symphony concert im Großen Saal how the Konzerthausorchester actually manages to play together so perfectly? What does a conductor and the individual musicians in the instrumental groups contribute? Successful orchestral playing, like successful coexistence in a democratic society, is based on listening to each other and creating polyphony together. In our workshop, you can literally experience this for yourself - even without any previous musical knowledge.

First, the Konzerthausorchester and conductor will perform the first movement of Rimsky-Korsakov's „Scheherazade“. In a moderated discussion, the musicians and conductor Sarah Ioannides demonstrate the skills required to play together. Under the guidance of a music teacher and coaches from the orchestra, you will form a workshop orchestra and gradually work on important skills of ensemble playing in subgroups: passages of the piece will be broken down to its musical essence and precisely imitated using body percussion, gestures and simple conducting techniques. In the finale, the Konzerthaus orchestra and workshop participants sit opposite each other in orchestral formation and create the music together. The orchestra plays the original unaltered, while the workshop orchestra intervenes at the appropriate points with its imitations. Experience how important each individual is for the overall success and what it means to be part of the orchestra.
