Cabaret Concerts in the Schlosspark Theater in Berlin Steglitz

At the cabaret concerts, which the DSO is holding in the 2022-23 season for the first time in collaboration with the Schlosspark Theater, what belongs together will grow together in the light of classical music. Perhaps. For ‘Die Kunst der UnFuge’ is an experiment: handpicked chamber  musicians from the DSO and nationally known cabaret artists sally forth on joint balancing acts on four Monday evenings.

In the Schlosspark Theater in Berlin-Steglitz, Dieter Hallervorden, who awakened the theatre from years of deep slumber in 2009, and Managing Director Thomas Schmidt-Ott have put together a programme that will stimulate laughs and critical spirit at the same time, nonchalantly tearing down the borders between serious music and entertainment.

Four Cabaret Artists, four Ensembles

Mathias Richling will kick the series off on 10 October. He is one of the best parodists on the German cabaret scene; he became nationally known with his merciless  programmes, as well as TV shows like ‘Scheibenwischer’ and ‘Jetzt schlägt’s Richling’. He will be played around, surrounded and drowned out by the 4Cellos ensemble, whose music promises pure contrasts between Bach, Beatles and Metallica.

Author, comedian, cabaret artist and musician Christian Ehring is well-known not only from ZDF’s ‘heute-show’, but also from the satirical magazine ‘extra3’ on NDR, in which, as a newscaster, he skewers the absurdities of day-to-day political life in a mordant, impertinent and witty way. On 12 December he will encounter the DSOblech ensemble, which will counter him with a powerful sound in an original, virtuoso and inspired manner.

Torsten Sträter is a poetry slammer and cabaret artist with a Rhineland style of mouthing off, who presents himself as a word juggler and king of the satirical short story in high spirits and deploying cheeky sayings. On 12 February he will be accompanied by Randgruppe, an ensemble that has made unusual combinations of instruments their trademark.

According to the jury of the Bavarian Cabaret Prize, Arnulf Rating “tries to educate in the
best sense of the word and with the most effective of tools: humour.” He dissects politics and
the media, exposing the truth “behind the blatant droning”. On 12 April, the Polyphonia Ensemble Berlin, one of the DSO’s most versatile and entertaining ensembles, will be at his side.
