The thrilling violinist joins forces with chamber orchestra Camerata Bern for an absorbing new presentation of Haydn's The Seven Last Words of Christ.
This performance was previously programmed to feature Patricia Kopatchinskaja.
Haydn’s seven meditations on The Seven Last Words of Christ are presented in a refreshing new guise by Christian Tetzlaff and the Camerata Bern, with video installation by René Liebert.Christian Tetzlaff has been one of the most sought-after violinists and exciting musicians on the classical music scene for many years. With an extensive repertoire and equally at home in Classical, Romantic and contemporary repertoire, he sets new standards with his interpretations of the concerti of Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Berg and Ligeti, and is renowned for his innovative chamber music projects and performances of Bach solo repertoire.
In this concert, the music opens with a noble introduction and closes with a tempestuous ‘Earthquake’ finale. Liebert’s artistic reflection of Haydn’s music features images projected onto three screens, symbolising the three crosses. As the music unfolds, performers invite the audience to engage with Haydn’s music – and the messages behind it – with renewed focus, relating the work to the present day and the current state of the world. With its unique fusion of music and visuals, this is sure to be a thought-provoking and unforgettable experience.
