Vogler, Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg, Nagano: Beethoven, Sheperd at Kulturpalast

About the Event

As an introduction to this year’s festival edition, the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra and its chief conductor Kent Nagano offer a musically diverse concert evening in keeping with the festival motto, »BLACKANDWHITE«.
The orchestra from Dresden’s partner city performs Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony, a work that still stands slightly in the shadow of its titanic sisters Nos. 7 and 9, yet enchants the listener with originality and humour. The second half of the concert features a new work by the American composer Sean Shepherd, setting texts by the German master poet Ulla Hahn, which will have its world premiere at New York’s Carnegie Hall on April 23, 2023, will then be performed in Hamburg and finally comes to Dresden, ready to be introduced to the Festival audience.
