UP TO THREE / ensemble mosaik

UP TO THREE is a festival format in which the musicians of ensemble mosaik present themselves in small formations: A maximum of three musicians including guests perform simultaneously on the stage of the Acker Stadt Palast in Berlin Mitte.

Over two days, the mini-festival will present selected compositions as well as studies and experiments from the workshops of the participating musicians and composers. Performer-composer teams focus on themes from current projects in ensemble work and explore new ideas and experiments in joint work phases over longer periods of time. This research work gives rise to compositions and concepts that are to be presented and discussed in public.

An event by ensemble mosaik in cooperation with the Kyiv Contemporary Music Days and the Acker Stadt Palast, supported by the inm.
