Orango | Love & Diversity

Talea Ensemble, New York City, USA

The Talea Ensemble is known for building bridges between European and American music and is now dedicating itself to two American premieres. Oscar Bianchi's Orango combines a precisely notated score with improvisational passages from the auditorium and stage. This means the traditional boundaries and hierarchies between stage and audience are abolished, thereby allowing a unique and interactive sound performance. In this way the spectators themselves become artists. The same goes for Manos Tsangaris' Love & Diversity. Here musicians, audience, sound and space unite to form a musical theater performance reminiscent of musical speed dating. The focus is on the audience's short encounters with seven musicians, who each perform small scenic solo concerts at the same time. The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation is funding the concerts of the Talea Ensemble featuring works by Bianchi and Tsangaris.
