Bregenz Festival

One year after the end of the Second World War, the first Bregenz Festival was held: the week-long Bregenz Festwoche. The inaugural performance was staged upon two barges moored on Lake Constance - one carrying the stage structures for Mozart's early work Bastien et Bastienne, the other the orchestra. In a town that did not even possess a theatre, the idea of mounting a festival seemed eccentric; but the initially makeshift solution of choosing the loveliest part of the town - the lake - as the stage proved to be a hugely successful one. Visitors from Austria, Germany, Switzerland and France made the Festival an international event in its very first year. The Festival orchestra from the outset was the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, which has made a major contribution to the evolution and success of the Festival.

Hubert Parry: Songs of Farewell

Der bekannte britische Kammerchor Londinium wird sowohl britische Meisterwerke wie auch die dramatischen, herbstlich gestimmten "Funf Gesange", Op. 104 von Johannes Brahms darbieten. Brahms ubte bedeutenden Einfluss auf den britischen Komponisten Hubert Parry aus, dessen 100-jahriges Jubilaum wir in diesem Jahr feiern. Seine hochst intimen "Songs of Farewell" reprasentieren vielleicht sogar den Hohepunkt der englischen Chormusik der Romantik. Musik von William Byrd und Charles Wood sowie ein moderner Klassiker von Howard Skempton schliessen das Programm ab. Der Chor wird auch Werke von John Ireland und E.J. Moeran von seiner neuesten CD, "The Gluepot Connection" (4* BBC Music Magazine ) singen.

For its debut performance in Germany, renowned British choir Londinium performs masterpieces from the British tradition, alongside Brahms' superb, autumnal 'Funf Gesange', Op 104. Brahms was an important influence on Hubert Parry, whose centenary falls this year, and his highly personal 'Songs of Farewell' are perhaps the greatest flowering of the English Romantic choral tradition. Music by William Byrd and Charles Wood and a modern classic by Howard Skempton complete the programme, together with works by John Ireland and E J Moeran taken from the choir's recent recording 'The Gluepot Connection" (4* BBC Music Magazine).

Johannes Brahms: Funf Gesange, Op 104
Hubert Parry: Songs of Farewell

Der britische Kammerchor Londinium wird in seinem Konzert in Bingen die dramatischen, herbstlich gestimmten "Funf Gesange", Op.104, von Johannes Brahms mit den "Songs of Farewell" von Hubert Parry zusammenbringen. Brahms ubte bedeutenden Einfluss auf den britischen Komponisten Hubert Parry aus, dessen 100-jahriges Jubilaum wir in diesem Jahr feiern. Die hochst intimen "Songs of Farewell" reprasentieren vielleicht sogar den Hohepunkt der englischen Chormusik der Romantik. Londinium, ein renommierter Londoner Kammerchor, wird auf seiner ersten Deutschland-Tournee im Rheinland sein. Londinium hat kurzlich eine von der Kritik gefeierte CD mit englischer Musik des 20. Jahrhunderts veroffentlicht, "The Gluepot Connection" (4* BBC Music Magazine).
