Information about this production

excerpts from the booklet by Dirk Altmann

In the many years of preparation for this production I kept asking myself, what was everyday life like for a musician in the 18th century? What drove Mozart, what might his relationship with his colleagues have been like? Were there fundamental differences, apart from technological developments, from today’s music scene?

#BTHVN2020

“An die ferne Geliebte” with tenor Ilker Arcayürek

Our current project is in collaboration with the Int.-Hugo-Wolf-Akademie and viennies singer Ilker Arcayürek. Composer and arranger Andreas N. Tarkmann did a poetic arrangement for singer and ensemble from Beethoven song circle “An die ferne Geliebte” for us.

For the big anniversary, of course, the septet should not be missing in the program. A chamber music masterpiece that is still a great pleasure even after more than 200 years.

In our program you can discover Beethoven from his cheerful and sentimental side.

Ilker Arcayürek

Austrian tenor Ilker Arcayürek has emerged as one of the most exciting and versatile vocal artists in recent years -hailed by the press for his golden tenor (Opera Now Magazine) and quickly establishing himself “in a class of his own” (The Guardian). He is a winner of the International Art Song Competition of Germany’s Hugo Wolf Academy and was BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist. Champs Hill Records released his first solo album “Der Einsame” featuring Schubert songs and accompanied by Simon Lepper in 2017 to great critical
