Flagge der Ukraine

Dear friends of the Munich Chamber Orchestra,
Dear audience,


These past days have made us acutely aware of our powerlessness: it is impossible to express in gesture, word or music the suffering of those trapped by the war in the Ukraine, started as a criminal act of aggression by the Russian president.


As an orchestra that regularly performs works which were created in times of political aggression and repression – Hartmann’s “Concerto funebre“ and 4th Symphony, Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony or the Divertimento by Bartok – we feel that we must give voice to our outrage, our protest, our grief and our solidarity with those afflicted.


In our upcoming concerts, we will play string pieces by Valentin Silvestrov, a composer who lives in Kyiv and has a long standing relationship to the Munich Chamber Orchestra. The work is “Stille Musik”, which transports us with a gentle breeze from afar, a quiet plea for peace and a fundamental Song of Protest against the raging noise of war.

MINIMAL MUSIC AT KUNSTBAU

The Lenbachhaus will host several concerts in February and March 2022 featuring works by the US composer Julius Eastman (1940-1990). Eastman was a representative of minimal music and composed primarily for smaller ensembles, including piano quartet. This rarely performed and challenging music is an impressive example of the international and cross-genre movement of Minimalism. The MKO will be playing a concert at Lenbachhaus Kunstbau on March 5, 2022, 8 pm with works by Julius Eastman.

With the ordinance of 5 November 2021, the Bavarian state government has adjusted the applicable visitor regulations for cultural events. Due to the sharp increase in intensive care bed occupancy throughout the state, the Corona hospital ramp is on red, so that a “2G regulation” is obligatory.

This means that attendance at our 2nd subscription concert at the Prinzregententheater on 25 November 2021 is thus only possible for people who do not have COVID symptoms and have been vaccinated or have recovered.
