Concert 1/ 2016

“As you like it” Shakespeare songs and texts

A tribute to William Shakespeare on the 400th anniversary of his death.

When:     Saturday, 23 April 2016 at 4.00 p.m.
Where:    Apostle Church Kaiserslautern, Pariserstraße

“If the music be the food of love, play on...” wrote Shakespeare. His texts are like music. He used words to compose, created rhymes that are like melodies, imbued verses with rhythm. This poetry has inspired compositions by musicians from all eras and styles.

The foundation of recitals from Shakespeare’s literary heritage will range from music set to Shakespeare’s texts by pre-Baroque and Baroque masters, such as Thomas Morley and Henry Purcell, to representatives of classical modernism such as Sven-Eric Johanson, Philip Lane, and Nils Lindberg.

Concert 2 / 2016

“Petite Messe Solennelle” by Gioachino Rossini

Original score for four soloists, choir, two pianos, and harmonium

When:    November 2016 – the exact date has not been determined yet
Where:    to be announced

The unconventional mix of styles is both interesting and exciting: lively tunes on the one hand, garnished with opera-like belcanto and pathos, which never fail to surprise and inspire – and melodious piety on the other hand.

In an ironic dedication, Rossini wrote to “dear God” using a play of words: “Here it is, the poor little Mass. Is it really sacred music (musique sacrée) or rather infamous music (sacrée musique)?”

The exact dates of the performance and further information about the concerts will be published on the website of the Musikverein and in the local press.
