»A Month with Figaro«

Please Note: The Audio is only available in german.

A greeting from the South of France: between oysters and champagne, we asked conductor Thomas Hengelbrock about Mozart every day at the festival in Aix en Provence.
To find out what he still has to tell us today: About gut strings and class struggle, sex in the animal kingdom, emancipation and self-love.

»Des Pudels Kern« is a new series of conversations around classical music, pop, philosophy, art and science. We suck the fat off, listen back and into the future. What does Mozart’s Figaro tell us about abuse of power, what links martial arts and archery, and what do we learn from romance for living in climate disaster? The Poodle offers listeners direct access to music and what it has to say: about the beauty of the world and the crises of our time.

A production by Elisa Erkelenz and David-Maria Gramse in cooperation with Kölner Philharmonie, Konzerthaus Dortmund, Heidelberger Frühling, Mozartfest Würzburg, Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele, Bochumer Symphoniker im Anneliese Brost Musikforum Ruhr and WDR 3.
