World Premiere of Wolfgang Rihm’s Concerto en Sol

Jan. 01, 2020

World Premiere of Wolfgang Rihm’s <em>Concerto en Sol</em>

The Kammerorchester Basel, led by Sylvain Cambreling and featuring cellist Sol Gabetta, give the world premiere of Wolfgang Rihm’s Concerto en Sol at Victoria Hall in Geneva on January 20. The French and German premieres follow on January 24 at MC2 in Grenoble and at the Konzerthaus Freiburg on January 26

Additionally, the Japanese premiere of Wolfgang Rihm’s Eine Strasse, Lucille will be performed by soprano Yuko Kakuta and the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Norichika Iimori, at the orchestra’s 677th subscription concert on January 25. Based on the play Dantons Tod (1835) by Georg Büchner, Eine Strasse, Lucille is the musicalized monologue of a woman whose husband is condemned to execution after which the heroine herself follows the same fate. Through this musical dramaturgy and the late-Romantic richness and lyricism of the orchestra, Rihm has succeeded in exemplifying, "A pressing, moving study of human abandonment".
