Babylon Orchestra

Concert Premiere

Babylon Orchestra´s first concert is a musical tour around the world – from Syria, and going through the Mediterranean countries to Europe.

Under the musical leadership of Mischa Tangian, musicians from Syria, Iran, Russia, Italy, Greece and Germany present modern and classical pieces by the Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum, the Lebanese composer Ziad Rahbani and the Iraqi Oud player Naseer Shamma, amongst others. Original creations, arranged and composed by the orchestra members, are also at the core of the ecclectic programme. Besides the violin, horn and piano, instruments such as the oud and the qanun, the oriental lute and zither respectively, will be played.

Join us for the experience! Let yourself get carried away into a new universe of sound and get to know more about the musical roots of the ensemble. The musicians and the organisers are looking forward to celebrating an exciting evening with you !
