Four internationally renowned Berlin ensembles – Ensemble Adapter, ensemble mosaik Sonar Quartet and Ensemble Apparat – cooperate as a collaborative orchestra under the name Ensemblekollektiv Berlin. The participating ensembles are characterized by their extensive experience, highest quality renditions and clear profiles. Through collaboration,
these formations complement each other to create new musical possibilities. This unusual constellation, which is based on chamber music structures, is not only a novelty for Berlin’s cultural scene. For the Ensemblekollektiv Berlin’s second season, the ensemble’s unusual structure will be brought to the fore. In three programs the relationship of the individual ensembles to the collective as well as its chamber music structure and working methods as a basis for collective work are the focus of musical exploration.

The realization of the concerts have been made possible by a grant from the Hauptstadtkulturfonds and the Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung.
