Episode 2: Live Electronics
Groove - movement - eye contact. In the program #improphonie, the Stegreif Orchester captures the magic of collective, free improvisation. How can music emerge in the moment and in contact with the audience? Where do improvisation and composition meet? Can even an entire symphony be improvised?
The individual strengths and different backgrounds of the musicians become the driving energy and allow genre boundaries between jazz, salsa, techno, medieval and classical music to flow organically into one another. The sound of the symphonic orchestra is expanded by saxophone, drumset, electric guitar and the own voice.
The #improphonie is not a fixed composition, but is based exclusively on improvisational concepts.
Together with the musicians, the audience wanders through the four movements of a symphony that will never be heard again in this way - because it was born from the moment.

The Berlin collective Stegreif - The Improvising Symphony Orchestra opens new paths in classical music.
In radical recompositions, the international musicians combine symphonic music with improvisation and influences from other genres, create innovative concert formats and integrate the audience into immersive spatial concepts. In doing so, the ensemble consciously creates the balancing act between concert hall and festival stage, between Berlin Philharmonic Hall and FUSION - and will be guests at the Säälchen for the first time in 2023.
