Programmes

Johanna Doderer
«Der große Regen» for Orchestra
Sven Daigger
«Meeresbrandung» for mixed Choir and Orchestra
Tan Dun
«Water Concerto for Water Percussion and Orchestra»

This multimedia concert experience is all about water! In Johanna Doderer’s composition «Der große Regen» («The Great Rain»), water is an inner rainfall, an all-inundating musical idea. The young German composer Sven Daigger has set a poem by Christian Morgenstern to music in which the destructive power of the sea is evoked. And in a spectacular «Water Concerto», the star Chinese composer Tan Dun focuses on his childhood memories, using highly unusual water-based instruments. The programme is framed by projections and lighting effects that transform the Festspielhaus into a site of audio-visual experience.
