Till Eulenspiegel” is the title of two symphonic works that could not be more contrasting: Inw Richard Strauss‚ symphonic poem, the story of the medieval jester is musically realised in a lusty, sanguine way – while Andreas Peer Kähler’s work composed in 2023 with the epithet “Tyll – Bilder aus einer wüsten Welt” (Tyll – Pictures from a Desolate World) is based on the best selling author Daniel Kehlmann’s dark and disturbing portrait of Till Eulenspiegel. It is a commissioned work by the German-Nordic Youth Philharmonic Orchestra and will have its world premiere on January 4, 2024 in the Berlin Philharmonie. A special feature of the concert is that Strauss‘ Till Eulenspiegel will be performed scenically – together with the pantomime duo Bodecker & Neander.
In the second part of the concert – as a Nordic contribution to the concert program – Jean Sibelius‚ 5th Symphony in E-flat major op. 82 will be performed.
The orchestra course will conclude with two concerts at the Berlin Philharmonie: the gala concert on Thursday, January 4, 2024 in the Philharmonie’s Great Hall (see programme above) and a family concert on Saturday, January 6, 2024 in the Philharmonie’s Chamber Music Hall, where parts of the programme will be performed in a manner suitable for children.
