From 17 to 26 March 2023 with Robin Ticciati

Festival ›Music and Healing‹

What does music mean for us today? Can it offer sanctuary, an alternative to our fast-paced society? Does it provide an outlet for religious, mythical, even fantastical ideas? The festival ‘Music & Healing’ explores these ideas with compositions by von Bingen, Dowland and Bach, all the way to overtone singing and 21st century music, featuring masterpieces such as Wagner’s ‘Tristan und Isolde’, Stravinsky’s ‘Le sacre du printemps’ or Scriabin’s ‘Poème de l’extase’. Join the orchestra and Robin Ticciati for a spiritual journey through the world of music. All four concerts are available in a discounted festival package.

The Creation and a Comedic Apocalypse

Joseph Haydn and György Ligeti both loved humour and the experiment. Robin Ticciati organizes a stunning encounter between the two composers on January 19, with enigmatic, two-faced and thoroughly ingenious compositions. Solo hornist Paolo Mendes is featured as soloist in Ligeti's 'Hamburg Concerto'.

Chamber Music Concert

Paving the way to the great symphony

With Franz Schubert's Octet, a DSO ensemble will explore one of the most beautiful pieces for this varied instrumentation on 12 March at the Villa Elisabeth. It is one of the works with which the composer wanted to "pave the way to the great symphony" and wrote his way out of a creative crisis. On the way there, Johannes Schöllhorn's 'Spur' and 'Ein Hauch von Unzeit III' by Klaus Hubers will also be performed.
