Three past Three: Kokon (Premiere) – With works by Poppe, Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Fischer, Trojahn u.a.

Much too often, the arts tend to avoid direct contact with each other. Not at the Hitzacker Summer Festival! In the spirit of our “Space.Time” motto, the opening concert brings the spoken word, the art of the dance and music together, effortlessly creating a mental painting. The Kuss@Kokon project, which is funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation, links the creativity of eight artists and director Daniel Finkernagel. In individual components and historical echoes of the likes of Mendelssohn, time in the concert hall seems to drift away. Enno Poppe’s work “Free Time” is on the program and a work by Óscar Escudero is scheduled to premiere. Duration: approx. 70 minutes, no interval


7.07 p.m. – VERDO in the garden area (admission free)

Eight past Eight: Duo

Robert Schumann (1810–1856): Zwölf Gedichte op. 35, Liederreihe nach Kerner (1840) und Werke von Ottorino Respighi (1879–1936 ) und Benjamin Britten (1913–1976)

The British star tenor Ian Bostridge is not only considered one of the world’s greatest interpreters of the Lied. He is also a particularly erudite program curator. In Hitzacker, he brings together Robert Schumann’s 1840 cycle on 12 poems by Justinus Kerner with rarities by Respighi and modern classics by Benjamin Britten. This concert also formally opens this year’s small but exquisite master class for vocalists.
