Orchesterprojekte in 2020/2021 und 2021/2022
Jenaer Philharmonie | Simon Gaudenz
The “highly motivated, open and musically unusually good orchestra” (FonoForum 5/20) still has follow-up dates available for the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 seasons with small or large programs for the Mahler cycle.
The orchestra’s soloists are Nuria Rial (Bach, Handel), Maximilian Hornung (Haydn, Brahms), Elisabeth Leonskaja (Brahms), Raphael Wallfisch (Gál), Benjamin Appl (Schubert, Wolf), Daniel Ottensamer (Mozart, Françaix, Weber) and Lise de la Salle (Mozart).
Mendelssohn Kammerorchester Leipzig | Peter Bruns
“Three generations of Mozart”, “Baroque Family – Baroque Styles” and “Relations – Acquaintances” are the names of the new programs of the “extremely sensitive and responsive orchestra” (Kölnische Rundschau 1 | 19). Soloists for the coming seasons are Reinhold Friedrich (Bach, Vivaldi), Daniel Ottensamer (Copland, Weber, Penderecki, Mozart), Dorothee Oberlinger (Bach, Telemann, Handel) and Peter Bruns (Haydn).
The chamber orchestra performs in a small instrumentation and standing up. They play historically informed interpretations on modern instruments: phrasing, vibrato and articulation come into their own. The ensemble is led from the cello by Peter Bruns. This creates a unique, chamber music-like orchestral sound that has won over audiences and press across the world.
For example with Lauma Skride in the Musikverein Wien, with Ragna Schirmer in the Prinzregententheater in Munich or with Reinhold Friedrich in the Cologne Philharmonic.
Polnische Kammerphilharmonie | Alexander Krichel – piano | Wojciech Rajski
Between concerts in Stuttgart and Vienna there are still dates available with works by Chopin, Prokofieff, Beethoven and Schubert – played by a “top-class ensemble that maintains a rather soft, lyrically emphasized classical sound with a rounded shape, but never thwarts the careful internal articulation and exact gradation of sound”. (Kölner Stadtanzeiger).
