Anniversary Concert: Ten Years of Life in the Frauenkirche

The program, with works by Mendelssohn, Schumann and Rihm, will be based on the musical history of Dresden. Robert Schumann lived here and wrote his second symphony in Dresden in 1845/46. Schumann and Felix Mendelssohn were friends and mutually benefited from this close partnership.

A particular highlight of the program is undoubtedly the European premiere performance of a new commissioned work by Wolfgang Rihm, one of the most significant German composers of our time. His double concerto for violin, violoncello and orchestra was written especially for the Dresden anniversary and results from a friendship with Jan Vogler and Mira Wang.

The concert with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra from New York also promotes a transatlantic message. In New York alone, countless contributors donated to the reconstruction of the Frauenkirche, which was destroyed in the Second World War, and in doing so expressed an international affinity to the city and its people. The anniversary concert is also generously supported by the donations and engagement of sponsors. Unlike any other church, the Dresden Frauenkirche has become a symbol of reconciliation and peace - and the music continues to promote a message of peace in the world!
