#TRIKESTRA_TRIALOG I

›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.

Making a Mark

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.

Children’s Concert Online

›Schubert’s Trout‹

The last rbbKultur children's concert of this season unfortunately had to be cancelled due to Corona. However, a replacement has been arranged: 

A special children's concert edition is dedicated to Franz Schubert's ›The Trout‹. The famous song and the variations from the ›Trout Quintet‹, sung and played by members of the DSO, tenor Holger Marks and pianist Jarkko Riihimäki, can be heard and seen on Youtube. As usual, the rbbKultur children's concert is presented by Christian Schruff, who has a lot to say about Schubert and the fish.
