THE WORLD SYMPHONY
THE FIRST ORCHESTRA WITH INSTRUMENTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD
Founded in 2010 in Stuttgart, ORCHESTER DER KULTUREN is a unique intercultural orchestra that combines classical symphony and rousing rhythms with ethnic instruments and singers to create a new musical sound experience for the whole family.
The leitmotif of uniting cultures musically leads to a completely new, unprecedented listening experience through the combination of the most diverse instruments and timbres, and opened the door for the orchestra to play worldwide.
The sincere respect for different cultures is fully expressed in the virtuoso compositions, as seemingly flowing musical transitions create a virtuosic, timelessly beautiful work of art from various mosaic stones.
The virtuosity of the musicians and the unique sound of the “ORCHESTRA OF CULTURES” is absolutely unique and shows the audience in a fascinating way what is possible when the cultures of the world meet at eye level.
SYMPHONIC WORLD MUSIC
The ORCHESTRA OF CULTURES consists of over 40 musicians and singers. Depending on the venue, the orchestra also performs in smaller formations of 5 or more musicians. The musical director Adrian Werum, instruments of the rhythm section and world music instruments are always present.
The orchestra is also available to accompany ceremonies and exhibition openings. The repertoire of the orchestra is written by Adrian Werum. These are mostly world premieres or arrangements (“new compositions”) and new productions of existing works. What all the works have in common is the connection between different musical cultures.
