Hearing the same work twice

Description Program Artists

With Repeat, the Festspielhaus is trying out a new and attractive concert format. The idea is to listen more closely to a substantial piece of music: once in excerpts, and then the whole work. At the beginning, the musicians will answer questions and play individual passages so the listener can really immerse him- or herself in the work afterwards. The very first program will be devoted to Olivier Messiaen’s legendary Quartet for the End of Time. The composer wrote this life-affirming music in a German prisoner-of-war camp. At the Festspielhaus it will be presented by the dramaturge and music educator Rafael Rennicke.
