Opening concert of the Kurt Weill Festival (26.2.-13.3.)

Anhalt Theater (Dessau)

Jazz calendar tip

Stravinsky's "Pulcinella Suite", Weill's "Berlin Symphony", Krenek's "Concerto for Violin and Orchestra", Mussorgsky/ Ravel's "Pictures at an Exhibition" - Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz, Ernst Kovacic (v), Ariane Matiakh (conductor)

Two protagonists of classical modernism and musical cosmopolitans of the twenties, who equally incorporated current trends and new sounds from jazz, swing, pop and avant-garde into their works, are the focus of the festivities in the Bauhaus city. Alongside Kurt Weill is Ernst Krenek, who died 25 years ago and whose Violin Concerto is now returning to the place where it was first performed in 1925 - shortly before Weill's Violin Concerto was first heard there.

Contemporaries such as Erik Satie, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Alban Berg, Modest Mussorgsky and Igor Stravinsky are on board on the festival journey through one of the most musically creative art epochs of the last century. The attractive supporting program includes the exhibition of Wassily Kandinsky's stage design for the staged performance of Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition".

And it does not remain "only" classically modern: Nils Landgren, Julia Hülsmann, Uli Kempendorff, Ernst Kovacic, Ensemble Modern, HK Gruber, Cornelia Froboess, Niels Klein with the BuJazzO, the sonic.art saxophone quartet and many others experiment, impress, jazz - the unique Nina Hagen also promises committed emotional as well as provocatively shrill.
