Contemporary Chamber Music

With the visual artwork "THE NEXT WORLD", the composer breaks new ground. This is reflected in the unusual instrumentation.

The traditional orchestra instrumentation is expanded to include African Ashiko drums and piano. From our European musical culture, symphonic contemporary music and African rhythm sounds, a bow is thus drawn across cultural borders.

Four central arias focus on the theme of each movement of the orchestral suite.

The musical direction is by conductor Ingo-Ernst Reihl.

Soprano solo: the magnificent Elena So.

Christoph Haberer

The experimental drummer Christoph Haberer has been attracting attention for years with his unorthodox percussion sets. His inspiring style of playing is rooted in his intensive study of African and Indian percussion music.

The Chamberorchestra

The openness and enthusiasm of all the musicians for new musical constellations shaped the joint work on THE NEXT WORLD from the very beginning. As of autumn 2021, we are pleased to welcome percussionist Christoph Haberer.
