Unfortunately, Infection Protection Measures Ordinance of the Bavarian State Government continues to allow only 25% of the possible seating capacity. To our great regret, this concert can therefore not take place as part of the musica viva subscription. All subscribers will, of course, automatically receive a pro-rata refund of their subscription fees. The subscription tickets issued for the concert will be cancelled and are invalid. We ask for your understanding that the refund will take some time. On Friday, January 14, 2022, at 9 am, the concert went on sale anew with a capacity of 25%.

PART OF THE MUSICA VIVA CONCERT SERIES
This concert is part of the musica viva concert series – one of the world’s most important forums for contemporary music. This forward-looking concert series presents new orchestral and ensemble works as well as advanced chamber music compositions of experimental character at the highest level.
About the Programme
The new work by Hans Thomalla, a composer who lives and teaches in Chicago, retraces the fugitive pathways and tireless energy of migrating birds. The music is in constant flux, propulsive without being pushy, yet anything but a naïve bucolic idyll. In contrast, 40 years ago the enigmatic French composer Luc Ferrari did more than look at the skies: his musical narrative spans Heaven and Hell, creating an orgiastic work from his fascination with the potential of the symphony orchestra. The Australian composer Liza Lim is likewise a sonic explorer who delves deep into the musical material. Her new orchestral trilogy draws inspiration from legends associated with three iconic women. Following Sappho (and preceding Fatima), she devotes this second part of her triptych to the sorrows and transfiguration of the Virgin Mary.
