Short & Casual: Rachmaninow – 15.09.2023

To the concert

In our stripped-Series is a lot different: The concert only lasts an hour at most, the musicians don’t play in black tails and nobody has to worry about clapping in the wrong place.

And you certainly don’t need any special knowledge to understand the music “correctly”. Just come, listen and be surprised. And if you want to learn a little more about the music, you can download the free Wolfgang app onto your smartphone and be guided through the respective work live in the concert.

Afterwards, we invite you to stay in our foyer, have our abgeFRACKt cocktail (also available alcohol-free) in the “Tutti” café, get another glass of wine or beer and relax a bit, chat or just go from the balcony to the to look at the city. Children are welcome, the Wolfgang app is suitable from the age of reading ability.

To the concert:

elephant concert! Unplayable! Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto is feared by many pianists. And indeed, it presents enormous technical difficulties. The gait with which the work begins is quite light-footed for an elephant concert…

Boris Giltburg, who plays it in our short concert, seemingly effortlessly ignores the challenges of the work and unfolds an enormously emotional and rousing musical world before us.

Please note: As of this season, the concert tickets are also valid as travel tickets 4 hours before and 6 hours after the start of the event in all local transport – except for special transport – in the VVO network area.
