about the programme

Phenomena that evoke special images and states of mind can make mysterious and auspicious titles. In her orchestral piece Moult, the Roman composer Clara Iannotta points to the existential and painful process of growth and metamorphosis that governs the lives of certain reptiles and insects. The Hungarian composer-conductor Peter Eötvös, in his violin concerto Alhambra, was inspired not only by the architecture and history of this famous building: “The many fountains, the surrounding mountains, the incredible Andalusian sunsets – all of this became part of my piece”. In contrast, Franco-American composer Edgard Varèse refers not only to physical landscapes with the title Déserts: it is above all a reflection of his soul, “man alone in a world full of mysteries…”

PART OF THE MUSICA VIVA CONCERT SERIES

This concert is part of the musica viva concert series. Founded by the German composer Karl Amadeus Hartmann in 1945 in Munich, musica viva is still one of the world’s most famous events for future-oriented and contemporary music, where many experimental works and performances for orchestra and chamber music receive their premiere.

concerts of the BRSO until May 1, 2021, without audience

On March 23, 2021, the Federal Chancellor and the heads of government of the federal states decided to extend the lockdown until April 18, 2021, among other measures to contain the corona pandemic. The orchestra’s anticipation of being able to play in front of a live audience again after lockdown is great. Unfortunately, it is extremely unlikely that this will be possible before May 1, 2021. Therefore the BRSO has decided not to give concerts in front of a live audience up to and including May 1, 2021.
