About the Concert

What is it? Not a symphony, not an overture, not a keyboard lion at the piano, but a "concerto for orchestra", which is also one! In this composition by Béla Bartók, all the musicians of the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra are allowed to perform as soloists - a wonderful collaboration in a large ensemble! But why doesn't chaos break out on stage with so many people and notes? How is the orchestra organized? Malte and the curious earth girl Phili go in search of clues: in front of, behind, above and of course under the stage in the Kulturpalast.
