Braunschweig State Theater
For the first time in the more than 400-year history of the Staatsorchester Braunschweig a climate concert will take place on the large theater stage. With this introductory concert, the climate group of the Staatsorchester will open eyes and ears to the questions of climate change through the exploration of sound worlds.
Concertmaster Felix Gutgesell interprets three seasons by Antonio Vivaldi with musicians of the orchestra. Instead of “winter”, the movement “Silentio” from Arvo Pärt's “Tabula Rasa” will be performed, creating a special atmosphere with contemplative sounds of silence, simplicity and the ringing of bells. Will the beauty of our planet or centuries-old masterpieces still be experienced and enjoyed in the coming decades?
