October Concert

Coming on October 29th this year! Happy to announce a solo appearance at a concert at the Palais Wittgenstein in Düsseldorf. I am contributing two solo pieces, Laconisme de l'aile by Kaija Saariaho and Dreisam Nore by Younghi Pagh Paan

Palais Wittgenstein Düsseldorf, 29.10.21 at 19.30


The organizers write:

Zu Gehör bringen wir das Stück „Quatre instants“ von Kaija Saariaho, das Psychogramm einer vor Liebe wahnsinnigen Frau. Dazu kontrastieren die zarten impressionistischen Klangwelten des früh verstorbenen Ausnahmetalents Lili Boulanger, „Claireries dans les ciels“.

Darüber hinaus wird die international gefeierte Flötistin Camilla Hoitenga mit dem Stück Laconisme de l´aile von Kaija Saariaho zu hören sein. Der Abend wird eingebettet in eine eindrucksvolle Lichtregie.

Palais Wittgenstein Düsseldorf, 29.10.21 um 19.30

Mit Alexandra von der Weth Sopran, Jan Rusko Tenor, Camilla Hoitenga Flöte, Roland Techet Klavier, Ivana Kleinertz Lichtkunst, Frank Schablewski Inszenierung

Wir freuen uns auf Sie! Ihre Alexandra von der Weth und Roland Techet
