From the new world

Pietari Inkinen, Conductor and the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie

Description Program Artists

All events for the second half of the 2020–2021 season are still planned, but cannot currently be booked. Advance ticket sales have been interrupted. The current experience with the coronavirus pandemic has shown us that in the event of strong demand (above the currently permitted 500 guests), advance sales can only be expanded once the official approval has been given to open the hall accordingly. We will continue to publish or confirm the final program six weeks before the scheduled event.

It’s true that we wouldn’t want to be without the current possibilities of digital sound production, but today we will be wholeheartedly celebrating symphonic film music. We pay tribute to this unique art with which composers play the strings of our soul by giving a sound, instrument, or instrumental group to our every hope and every disappointment. Our memories of great films will be awakened this evening by some of their masterpieces, followed in the second half by a work that served as a blueprint for the orchestral magicians of the studios in Hollywood and Rome: Dvořák’s immortal Ninth Symphony, “From the New World.”
