I call the next few weeks my "Farewell Festival":
5 concerts with my Munich Chamber Orchestra, describing the full range of this wonderful orchestra!
A portrait concert by Sofia Gubaidulina, performances at the Dresden Music Festival (soloist: Mischa Maisky) as well as the Herrenchiemsee Festival (Weinberg & Beethoven),
an subscription programme with works by Fabio Nieder (soloist: Sarah Maria Sun), Robert Schumann (soloist: Kian Soltani) and Beethoven.
As well as a co-production in the new Isarphilharmonie Munich with the Jazzrausch Bigband!
... wonderfully much Beethoven!
I am looking forward to my "MKO Festival" in the months of May-July as the conclusion of my time as chief conductor of this wonderful orchestra.
Works from Beethoven to Gubaidulina with concerts at the Dresden Music Festival, Herrenchiemsee Festival and the Prinzregententheater in Munich.
A lovely surprise: nomination for the Katzer / Goldmann CD for the German Record Critics' Award in the category "Contemporary Music".
