Stegreif.orchester

The STEGREIF.orchestra is an international group of 30 young, versatile musicians of various musical origins. What makes the ensemble unique is the way they create new paths for both themselves and the audience to approach classical music. Expanded by folklore, jazz, klezmer, blues and rock, Stegreif creates innovative, musically and visually powerful reinterpretations of well-known repertoire. STEGREIF explores new worlds of sound and is constantly trying to bend the boundaries between musical genres.

The ensemble always performs without sheet music, without a conductor and without chairs. The resulting freedom creates space for improvisation and movement. The concert hall, the auditorium, the ranks, everything becomes a stage, giving the audience a unique concert experience. The ensemble is under the direction of Juri de Marco and since its debut concert in RADIALSYSTEM V Berlin in October 2015 has performed with a variety of productions on various stages in Germany (including Konzerthaus Berlin, Elbphilharmonie, Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival i.a.). The musicians belong to a generation of artists that combines classical music, improvisation and jazz at the highest artistic level. Their inspiration lies in developing a new performance practice that does not limit itself to reproduction and in seeking new concert formats.
