Brandenburg: German premiere for Miguel del Águila

Feeling chilly in January? Go to Frankfurt/Oder and Potsdam for some musical heat this month: Conducted by Spanish conductor Pablo Mielgo, the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt will be playing fiery Latin American sounds, accompanied by a tango performance. The ‘Congo’ for orchestra by Uruguayan-born American composer Miguel del Águila will be - as a german premiere - the crowning glory of the two concert nights after works by Benjamin Yusupov and Astor Piazzolla. An event in the afternoon titled ‘When the Winter does the Tango’ will take all children on a musical journey to South America. So, see you in Brandenburg!  [read more]

Musically, the new year begins with Arturo Márquez: The New Year’s Concert ‘Dance’ at the Berliner Komische Oper tackles the ‘Conga del Fuego Nuevo’ for a swinging start to 2019. What a kick-off!

Cellist Sol Gabetta is going on tour with Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s Cello Concerto op. 43. She will be accompanied by the Orchestre Philharmonic Radio France, conducted by Finn Mikko Franck. The tour kicks off tonight at the Kölner Philharmonie; further stops include Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Vienna, Munich, Hannover and as a culmination the Philharmonie de Paris. Weinberg wrote his dark and melancholy Cello Concerto in 1948. Premiered by old master Mstislav Rostropovich in 1957, the work was considered an insider tip for the longest time and only found its way into concert halls rather late. Hence, this special Weinberg Concerto is more than due all the attention it is getting from... [read more]

Weinberg’s Opera “The Passenger” Premieres to Great Success in Denmark

On 22 August 2018, Mieczysław Weinberg’s opera “The Passenger” had its Scandinavian premiere in the Aarhus Musikhuset. The audience was deeply impressed with the Philipp Kochheim production which received raving reviews. “Overwhelming”, such was the verdict of the Danish press after the premiere of the opera which had its first staged premiere only in 2010 in Bregenz and was put on stage in various countries after that, even though Weinberg had already completed it in 1968 – technically is the previous century. With this in mind, this late discovery deserves the attention it is finally getting in the world of opera even more. We look forward to many exciting new productions in the Weinberg... [read more]
