What’s their aim? To shake up the classical music experience and bring it crescendoing into the modern world.
In reaction to the refugee crisis and modern statehood and boarder concerns, the team chose Hungarian composer Béla Bartók, himself once a refugee, as their inspiration due to his multicultural apporach to music, and invited reknowned Syrian composers to create new arrangements of Bartók’s work, lending an Arabic touch.
On both concert nights, the audience will be taken on an immersive journey deep below the former brewery, with video art installations by the prominent Syrian artist Ali Kaaf and jam sessions before the main show and DJ sets from DJ KALI & Ipek Ipekcioglu afterwards.
“ensemble mini” is a classical supergroup of young players from Germany’s best orchestras. Consisting of up to 20 soloists, ensemble mini choose a major composer or theme for their shows and perform big symphonic music in mini ways.
Included in the programme will the world-renowned duo, Ferhan & Ferzan Önder on piano and the funky beats of Roumanian Folk Dance with Arab percussionist Rony Barrak.
