News Event D-bü competition heading for the final week: The ensembles

An exciting final week of the D-bü Competition 2024 awaits in Nuremberg from 28 to 31 May, when the eight selected ensembles will present their innovative concert concepts to the public and the student jury.


The ensemble rauschgold opens on 28.05. Two musicians and an actress explore the question of the finiteness of our human existence in the historic rock corridors, developing a multi-faceted "music theatre in miniature".


The programme continues in St. Egidien with the ensemble Anemoia. Two composers have joined forces with various instrumentalists to create a dream journey into the Baroque era. State-of-the-art technology combined with music to create surreal images.

The next day, two song duos - but very different!


The LiedExtend duo is all about playing. In this concert full of surprising contemporary music, the two masters students play with and against each other for an absurd prize.

Ensemble Synaptic

The crisis atmosphere continues later in the evening in the Heizhaus with Ensemble Synaptic. The two musicians also explore the question of how we as a society deal with mental crises - combining Schubert's Winterreise with contemporary music.

chaos|cadence and friends

30 May begins with the music of the future: the eight-piece ensemble chaos|cadence and friends explores how cutting-edge technology is changing and shaping our everyday lives. Music meets text, image, performance and new media as the audience wanders through the Congress Hall.

Dominik Vogl

Later in the evening it's back to nature: Dominik Vogl invites you to a "duet with a tree" in the Pellerhof. The guitarist and composer wants to make music with and for plants, and has brought along a fellow plant: an ash.

Orlando Bass

The last evening of the competition will begin in classical style - but only at first glance, of course! Pianist Orlando Bass will explore Beethoven's Diabelli Variations in a new way. In the Kulturscheune, the audience will be able to listen, puzzle and rediscover: Who hears what?

Clicky Sticks

To round off the evening, the Clicky Sticks will perform at the DESI. The two percussion students have been inspired by their versatile instruments to search for a balance between individual fulfilment and social collectivity.
