Tuesday 2.8

9.09 a.m. – 10.10 a.m. St. Johannis-Church Hitzacker (Elbe), admission free
Nine past Nine: Everyman’s Choir with Alexander Lüken, choir director

A great way to start the day! Assuming the Corona rules allow it, our popular festival choir will be gathering in the church in the center of Hitzacker’s old town to sing. Once again, director Alexander Lüken has put together a program for everyman, for sixty minutes of pure joy.

11.11 a.m. – Starting point at the Touristinfo, Am Markt 7, continuation at the St. Johannis-Church Hitzacker (Elbe), admission free
Eleven past Eleven: In(ter)vention with Jan Philip Schulze (Piano) and award-winnig song duos

Let yourself be surprised by music open air with instrumentalists and singers of the Lied Academy. And follow them to the St. Johannis Church, regular and long-standing venue of the festival, to continue the concert. Admission is free. Instead, we very much encourage you to make a donation to the church for its urgently needed structural renovation. A newly founded support association for this purpose will draw attention to itself on site. In case of rain only in the church.

Johannes Brahms (1833–1897): Quintett G-Dur für zwei Violinen, zwei Violen und Violoncello, op. 111 (1890)

Together with Kim Kashkashian (viola), the Kuss Quartet perform Johannes Brahms’ late G-Major quintet op. 111. The commissioned work by the exceptional German-French composer Mark Andre joins in to kindle a cycle of string quartet aphorisms that address the strings’ oscillation in the continuum of space and time. Flute and harp – the latter played by the solo harpist of Munich’s Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra – expand the tonal scope of the concert’s space even further. The commission of Mark Andre’s work was funded by the Siemens Music Foundation. Duration: two approx. 45-minute segments with an interval
