Model project “Concert for All” 6
“Petruschka” (Fassung 1947)
Steffen Tast - Conductor
Steffen Tast was born in 1965 in Berlin.
After studying violin at the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” Berlin in 1987, he became a member of the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin (RSB). In the same year, his interest in contemporary music led him to the chamber ensemble “Kammerensemble Neue Musik” Berlin (KNM).
In recent years, he has been appearing increasingly as a conductor. Initially, the focus was on working with KNM Berlin. This was followed by invitations as a conductor with the Ensemble Oriol, the Kammerakademie Potsdam, the Ensemble Modern, and the Ensemble Ascolta Stuttgart. Since 2005 he has been regularly conducting chamber orchestra concerts with members of the RSB and their orchestra academy, and also symphony concerts as part of the family- and school student concerts of the orchestra since 2014. In his home village of Klein Leppin in north-western Brandenburg, he was one of the initiators of the project “Dorf macht Oper” (“Village makes opera”) in 2005 and has since been its musical director.
Steffen Tast is involved as mentor in the orchestra academy of the RSB.
Music can draw pictures, express itself in movement and tell of emotions. Together with the sign actor Jan Sell, the RSB will present the music of Igor Stawinsky’s Petrushka in a very unique way.
“Concert for All” is a model project in which the RSB designs offers that enable participation for deaf and hard-of-hearing people as well as people with cognitive impairments, in order to eventually integrate them permanently into the orchestra’s concert programme.
During the four-year term of the project, methods and concepts are to be tested in close cooperation with associations, affected people and their relatives, pilot events are to be held and ultimately new, inclusive formats are to be created that meet the needs of the target groups and yet are open to all visitors.
