The season 2017/2018

Dear music-lovers,
appassionato, furioso, patetico, ... the vocabulary of music is rich in terms for our new season’s theme: passion. We’ll be discovering and revisiting composers who turned their ideas into passionate music. We’ll hear works spanning four centuries, from Haydn’s Symphony »La Passione« to the world premiere of »Das heiße Herz«, a song-cycle written by Jörg Widmann for our Portrait Artist this year, Christian Gerhaher – an exceptional singer par excellence!
