Philip Rumsch: ARCAIDA - 111th Birthday of the National Library

Reading room of the National Library

Happy Birthday - on the occasion of the 111th birthday of the German National Library, Leipzig-based
composer, sound designer and pianist Philipp Rumsch will perform his new solo concert program "ARCADIA" in the library's historic reading room. The project is conceived and produced especially for this concert evening. In reference to the large mural by painter Ludwig von Hofmann in the historic reading room - in whose work the myth of Arcadia is a recurring motif - Philipp Rumsch develops a reflection on the concept of utopia. Reflecting on utopian ideas - both in a global and local context - is the starting point for the music of the evening. Philipp Rumsch - who in the music of the evening shows interfaces between Ambient, Contemporary Classical and Improvisation - invites in an immersive sound-setup to think together about visions for our future. - Admission free (with ticket)
