SWR Sinfonieorchester – Sylvain Cambreling

Introduction with Habakuk Traber
at 19:00, Südfoyer (south foyer)

With a large, unconventional orchestration and requiring a high degree of virtuosity, Janáček’s famous “Sinfonietta” – the composer’s brilliant major symphonic piece – represents a challenge for every orchestra. The composer himself described the piece as a tribute to his native town of Brno. Sylvain Cambreling, chief conductor of the SWR Symphonic Orchestra, will place the work in an environment that accentuates its highly original and exemplary musical architecture: the same interconnection of form, colour and density can be experienced in the works of young Hanspeter Kyburz, 89-years-old Henri Dutilleux, and Anton Webern.
