ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Starting in 2024, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra (MCO) will take over the Artistic Direction of the renowned Musikwoche Hitzacker for five years. Titled, aus Leidenschaft (Out of Passion) the festival's 38th edition will reflect the MCO's own passion for music and their wish to engage in an active dialogue with audiences and the festival itself.
The Mahler Chamber Orchestra, together with violinist Alina Ibragimova and MCO soloists open Musikwoche Hitzacker with Sturm und Drang (Storm and Stress). The programme reflects the motto of this year's festival edition, including Haydn's "La Passione" symphony and Mozart's precious fragment of the Sinfonia Concertante in A major. The latter is actually a triple concerto for violin, viola, violoncello and orchestra, which the composer started working on in 1779, but left unfinished. The programme is completed by Mozart's violin concerto no. 5, equally in A major, a work much loved by Alina Ibragimova.
