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?Orchestras. 

Songfest

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