The large-scale choral project »Die Schöpfung: Erde an Zukunft« is part of the Internationale Bachakademie Stuttgart’s arts communication programme »BachBewegt!Singen!« which was founded to open up access to music for young people. For this, composer and cultural manager Karsten Gundermann has adapted Joseph Haydn’s »Creation« for the present day. His aim was to create a large artwork that would move people deeply and encourage them to take responsibility for our endangered environment. A total of 1,500 pupils have joined him and worked on this musical masterpiece for several months. In May 2022 the project will be made accessible to the general public on seven occasions, each involving 200 participants, in the Greater Stuttgart area. A highlight in the project will also be celebrated at the
Ludwigsburg Forum when the pupils join up with the Gaechinger Cantorey under Hans-Christoph Rademann and invite the audience to sing with them. July 2022 will see the appearance of a documentary film about the project as a whole.
A project of the International Bach Academy in cooperation with dm-drogeriemarkt and the Ludwigsburg Festival.
