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.
A legal scholar who draws and paints, even writes fairy tales, and plays and novels? And who also composes and conducts music?
Such a person was Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann (he took the first name Amadeus himself out of admiration for Mozart), born in Königsberg in 1776 and died in Berlin in 1822.
The Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin (RSB) brings his characters such as the Nutcracker, the Mouse King and Aurora, as well as Cat Murr and the Bonbon Fairy back to the stage.
There is music that brings Hoffmann’s characters to life with the help of Juri Tetzlaff. In addition, Steffen Tast conducts music by Tchaikovsky, Lyadov and Schumann, but also music that he composed himself and, last but not least, music by Mozart, Beethoven and Gluck, which brings us closer to the mysterious storyteller as a person.
