Donaueschingen | Premiere of the new work by Lidia Zielińska


The world premiere Lidia Zielińska's Klangor for orchestra will take place on Sunday, 20 October 2019, during the final concert of the Donaueschinger Musiktage festival.

The new work by Lidia Zielińska was commissioned by the Donaueschinger Musiktage festival and the SWR2 radio in cooperation with the Adam Mickiewicz Institute. The world premiere will be made by SWR Symphonieorchester under the direction of Tito Ceccherini. The programme of the final concert of the Donaueschinger Musiktage festival will also include three other world premieres: Melancholy for chromatic harmonica and orchestra by Saed Haddad, Elemental Realities for orchestra by Jürg Frey, and WÄCHTER for bass flute and pipes orchestra by Eva Reiter.

New music can be a place of retreat and contemplation. The world premieres of the final concert each seek and assert their own place, be it melancholy as an expression of woefulness in the new work by the Jordanian composer Saed Haddad, be it in Eva Reiter’s sound experiment, in which the musicians dispose of their instruments, in search of a pover music. With Lidia Zielińska, the orchestra becomes a gloomy echo chamber that picks up and unfolds a sound of nature.
