Event Series in Cooperation with the Konservatorium für türkische Musik Berlin (BTMK) 

The WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN and the Konservatorium für türkische Musik Berlin (BTMK) have been working in close and trusting collaboration since the late 1990s. The cooperation event concerts of soloists and the BTKM ensemble have notably been enriching our program ever since.

As a continuation of this longstanding tradition, the concert series KLANGFARBEN seeks to provide a platform for not only professional, (predominantly) local Turkish artists - but for emerging artists especially - on stage at the WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN.

The BTMK Orchestra currently consists of 20 young musicians, who perform instrumental pieces in addition to accompanying the 30 singers of the BTMK choir. In addition to classical European instruments such as the guitar, violin and clarinet, many Turkish instruments are played, such as the qanun and the oud. The musicians perform various musical styles ranging from Turkish pop, classical and folk music to Jazz and European music.
