Unfortunately, the Auryn Quartet had to cancel for today's concert due to illness. This is particularly sad, because the legendary quartet is currently on a farewell tour and would have played one of its last concerts in Hitzacker.
The Korean Esmé Quartet has stepped in at short notice for this date. The Süddeutsche Zeitung judged in February 2019: "These four young instrumentalists play music with depth and maturity, which – this cliché can also be swept off the table – does not depend on age." Duration approx. 70 minutes, no intermission.
19.07 – VERDO Concert Hall
This concert is cancelled. Tickets already booked are valid for the concert at 17.05.

Nine Passt Nine: Listening.Different Twice: KRENE, World Premier
An exciting experiment: Composer Clemens von Reusner invents an electroacoustic work that interacts with Franz Schubert’s famous B-flat Major piano sonata. The work called KRENE (Greek: source, well) is commissioned by the Festival, the concert will be a world premier. The original piano part is played by Nicolas Namoradze, himself a talented composer. He was born in the USA, grew up in Hungary and studied with Emanuel Ax at the Juilliard School in New York. Namoradze has been chosen by Sir András Schiff to participate in his “Building Bridges” project.
