The atmosphere is excited as the young ladies of the violin class of the city music school take the stage of the well-attended dr.-stammberger hall on saturday evening. They kick off the 90th anniversary. Orchestra concert of the kulmbach chamber orchestra and play cheerfully and skillfully the menuetto of giovanni sammartini. "An important man in the history of classical music", female ludwig weilbacher, the presenter of the evening, to tell the story. Was it sammartini, after all, who paved the way for the young mozart to enter the concert hall at age 14.
Weilbacher knows how to transport the audience into the world of the composers who will be presented this evening. Before each of the three main parts of the concert, he tells little anecdotes and interesting facts. Robert volkmann he describes as an artist who has unjustly fallen into oblivion. The following allegro moderato from the serenade no. 2 in F-major takes the listener into the vastness of the puszta, evoking thoughts of the empress sissi, who loved hungary so much. This association also arises in volkmann's waltz, in which one has the glittering ball gowns before one's eyes.
With flying fingers
"f you love music, you can't be completely unhappy", weilbacherfranz quotes schubert, in whose symphony nr. 5 in B-flat major the orchestra under the direction of horst degelmann dives into, in order to make the audience dream, just like schubert. The menuetto allegro molto, on the other hand, has something ouching about it, one can feel the passion of the performers. And this can also be felt after the intermission in the third and last part. For the concerto for piano and orchestra nr. 23 in A major by wolfgang amadeus mozart the chamber orchestra engaged the soloist johannes schofer. This piano concerto is the only one with a written solo cadenza. The pianist's fingers fly over the keys, and supported by the orchestra with 29 strings and seven wind instruments, they play themselves into the hearts of the audience.
