Alexander Lüken, a student of Marcus Creed’s and the artistic director of the Barmen-Gemarke church choir and the University of Bonn’s Chamber Choir, has directed our morning festival choir in Hitzacker for several years. This year for the first time he’s bringing along to the Elbe the Junger Kammerchor Köln (Young Chamber Choir of Cologne), a vocal ensemble that he founded in 2015. Their wide-ranging a cappella program, covering 14th to 20th century music, will also touch on some historic arrangements of Franz Schubert’s Lieder.

Octet without Schubert – Works by Beethoven, Widmann, Stockhausen, Ravel and Strauss

When up to eight wonderful artists get together for a performance of Schubert’s famous F Major octet, it’s a great opportunity to add a bit more to the program. This first evening concert celebrates chamber music from three centuries, all the while with Schubert in mind.

Octet Reflected – Schubert’s F Major Octet D 803

In a sense, Franz Schubert was carrying on the tradition of Beethoven’s septet with his richly shaded 1824 octet. But it turned out not to be simply entertaining music. Instead, it is a milestone of highly complex chamber music, on the path to symphonic music. While Schubert was still alive, the work was premiered by the legendary second Schuppanzigh Quartet at the Vienna Musikverein in 1827 – and the audience was promptly overwhelmed by its unusual length and intensity.
