Season 20-21

Tickets sale to be postponed

Due to Corona, single ticket sales for the 2020-21 season will not start on 15 July 2020, as originally announced, but probably in mid-August. Up-to-date information and news on the concerts at the start of the season will then be available here. We kindly ask you to be patient a little longer.


›Pastorale – Leon Weber Rework‹

Roaring water, chirping birds, cuckoo calls – Beethoven's 'Pastorale' transports the listener into a world of nature, whose untouchedness and diversity is at stake today.

As part of the joint project series TRIKESTRA, the junge norddeutsche philharmonie, the STEGREIF.Orchester and the DSO have explored the 'Pastorale' in their #beethoven_rotation project. After a first corona-induced, digital engagement with Beethoven's Sixth Symphony as an interactive 360° video, a second part followed in the form of the commissioned work 'Pastorale – Leon Weber Rework' for ten musicians and live electronics, which has been released as a video in June 2020.

For Diversity and Solidarity

Lorna Hartling has been a violist in the DSO for 28 years – an orchestra whose members come from 23 countries. Shocked by the deadly violence against African-Americans in the USA, but also by the racism that is rampant worldwide, she and her colleagues have made it a priority to set a musical sign for diversity and justice.

With a string sextet arrangement of the organ composition 'Adoration' by the African-American composer Florence Price (1887-1953), they join the international movement that stands for equality, appreciation and respect for other people.
