What beautiful coincidences there are… The work currently being commissioned by Choriner Musiksommer to Christoph Schambach – to write an appropriate festival overture for our anniversary – will be entitled Thanks to Music. The novel piece will be a suggestive and personal commitment by the composer, who, like us, is a child of the Brandenburg state and region. Leoš Janáček‘s suite from the opera The Cunning Little Vixen radiates a deeply felt love of nature and conjures up the contrast between civilisation and “unspoilt” nature in emphatic movements. The final highlight of the concert will be the rhythmic, sensuous and bibulous songs of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana in its orchestral version.
