PROLOG zur Saison 2020/21 ›NACHBARN‹
Six concerts in six weeks, in an exceptional time : no ARD competition after the summer break, no Oktoberfest. Thus the idea was born to create something new in Sendling’s neighbourhood: a small but top-class concert series at Himmelfahrtskirche as a prolog to our ‘Neighbours’ season. For more than six weeks every weekend, great musicians and friends will be performing with us: conductor and harpsichordist Omer Meir Wellber, cellist and conductor Nicolas Altstaedt, baroque specialist Enrico Onofri and English conductor Ryan Bancroft will each offer a special programme with the orchestra. One concert in the series will of course be conducted by MKO Chief Conductor Clemens Schuldt; another will be performed by the orchestra’s wind section. From Purcell and Bach to Hartmann, Hoskawa and Ligeti; the one-hour concerts each promise exciting musical moments that we would like to experience together with you.
