Cinematic music, music & film
Ensemble der Dresdner Philharmonie conducted by Jonathan Stockhammer - Philharmonie im Kulturpalast, Konzertsaal

Program Info:
In the early 1990s, Wolfgang H. Scholz made the extremely poetic film “Schatten-seeker”, which traced the history of Dresden's Schillerplatz. At that time Rainer Promnitz wrote the music for the film. Both will condense their material into a new music-film version. Georg Katzer's ›Scene‹ for chamber ensemble applies Goethe's expressions of incomprehension for the current music of the time to his own presence. Paul Dessau's ›In memoriam Bertolt Brecht‹ is one of the most radical compositions that were made in East Germany at that time. Hanns Eisler's “Fourteen Ways to Describe the Rain” is best known as highly virtuoso chamber music. This work was originally created for the film ›Regen‹ by Joris Ivens. We present the music live to the film.
