In the first festival week, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra demonstrates the versatility of a chamber ensemble several times. Between a virtual-reality installation and a staged performance with Patricia Kopatchinskaja, its members offer two intriguing chamber music programmes. The first works are by two composers who share the fate of an early death at the age of only 35: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Claude Vivier. Even if Mozart’s Sonata for Bassoon and Cello breathes a carefree, virtuoso spirit, Sunday morning will also witness the melancholy of Vivier’s piece for violin and clarinet. This continues in parts of the main work of the day. Mozart follows his thirty-minute String Quintet in G-minor with his Quintet in C-major, answering with a duller, more emotional undertone. The seven members of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra pour heart and soul into the overall dramaturgy of this matinee, which ends on a more optimistic note.
This concert will also be transmitted acoustically to the court of the Ludwigsburg Residential Palace.
