  • Konsert

The university orchestra - finally waking up from its "Corona slumber" - comes up with well-known composers and strong pieces. In the duplication of Beethoven - Schubert and Debussy - Bizet , the path from the early romanticism of Vienna leads directly to the romantic Parisian epoch with the first delicate impressionist approaches of Claude Debussy.

The university orchestra - finally waking up from its "Corona slumber" - comes up with well-known composers and strong pieces. In the duplication of Beethoven - Schubert and Debussy - Bizet , the path from the early romanticism of Vienna leads directly to the romantic Parisian epoch with the first delicate impressionist approaches of Claude Debussy.

Despite the catchy tunes in the second half, Beethoven's 4th Piano Concerto is the central work of the concert. His lyrical, quiet poetry at the beginning, his enigmatic form of dialogue between piano and orchestra in the second and his dance exuberance in the last movement builds a bridge to romanticism.

In cooperation with the Folkwang University of the Arts, folkwang junior | Institute for the promotion of young artists under the patronage of Frank Peter Zimmermann, plays a very young and hopeful up-and-coming talent: Vincent Heeren.
