The Planets

Thu 07/11/2019 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 46.00-9.50 €


Composer Dieter Ammann comes from the world of jazz and improvisation, and his music combines spontaneity with carefully crafted technical compositions. The Planets by Gustav Holst takes listeners on a voyage through our solar system. Merkurius – the winged messenger, Venus – bringer of peace and other heavenly bodies named after Roman gods are each given their own characterisations. Giacinto Scelsi’s modern classic that opens the concert transforms simplicity into fine art.
