Preview: September 25th - October 1st 2017

Concerts and events with the premiertone artists

An orchestra playing in a tent at the Oktoberfest - the Münchener Kammerorchester gives that idea a try and performs in the "Herzkasperl-Zelt" at the "Oide Wiesn" on September 30th. Clemens Schuldt conducts some movements from Jörg Widmann's "Dubairische Tänze" on this occasion, BR-Klassik is going to broadcast live. There is another event in an equally unconventional location this week: Daniel Finkernagel hosts "Klassik mit Kölsch" at the Café Funkhaus in Cologne on September 26th. In this concert series, you can not only listen to music but also to some stories about being a musician as Daniel Finkernagel talks to the members of the WDR Sinfonieorchester.

Clemens Schuldt also conducts a more traditional concert this week: On September 26th, he's going to lead the Ulster Orchestra in Belfast in a concert with works by Schumann, Mahler and Beethoven.

Passo Avanti appears in Karlsruhe on September 27th. At the "Festival der Nationen" in Bad Wörishofen, Nils Mönkemeyer participates in even two concerts on September 27th and 28th, performing for example with Julia Fischer and Daniel Müller-Schott.
