About the Event
In Leipzig's beloved Gewandhaus, hear the Gewandhaus Orchestra and organ player Michael Schönheit under the baton of accordeonist Omer Meir Wellber for a captivating performance of works by Haydn, Sadikova and Bruckner.
Omer Meir Wellber's repertoire is as broad as it is unusual, his interpretive approach energetic and unconventional. He brings to light what is otherwise in the shadows: Haydn, whom others consider harmless, Bruckner's Zeroth, which is passed over even in cyclical performances, and the accordion as an outsider in classical concert life. For the latter, a commission went out to Aziza Sadikova, a Berliner by choice.

- Aziza Sadikova – Strahlen des Feuers für Orgel, Akkordeon und Orchester (Uraufführung, Auftragswerk des Gewandhausorchesters)
