Berlin -- A German orchestra announced plans on Tuesday to play a concert in a brothel in a novel effort to bring classical music "out of the concert hall and to where people are."

Punters and employees at the Eros Centre in Leipzig would be treated on Friday to six musicians and a singer from the city's Forum for Contemporary Music (FZML) performing "licentious and erotic" works, the orchestra promises.

These include "Le Flirt" by French composer Erik Satie for piano and voice, "Seven Erotic Songs" by Dirk D‘Ase for mezzo-soprano and piano, and Askell Masson's "Rhythm Strip" played on two snare-drums.

The concert comes ahead of a festival devoted to "erotic music culture" in Leipzig from December 4-6 entitled "Sex.Macht.Musik" ("Sex.Makes.Music").
