Four past Four: Sunrise Concert – Works by Frederic Mompou (1893–1987)

Lilit Grigoryan, an Armenian pianist who has studied and worked with Maria João Pires, is dedicated as no other to the music of the late impressionistic Catalonian composer Frederic Mompou (1893-1987). Her recording of the four volumes of Mompou’s “Musica Callada” miniatures from the 1960s has attracted much attention and praise. She has agreed to the festival experiment of performing these iridescent works outdoors, at sunrise – sharing space and time with the waterfowl of the Elbe River Valley.

2.02 p.m. – VERDO in the garden area (admission free)
Two past Two: Audience Academy, Photoflash with Hannah Weirich, Elisabeth Kufferath and Oliver Wille

3.03 p.m. – VERDO Concert Hall, Double Concert Part One

„Back to the Future” is a concert series for premieres, supported by the Northrhine-Westfalia Arts Foundation, the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation and the Musikfonds e.V. with project funding by the German Federal Commission for Culture and Media.

“Back to the Future” is a concert project that takes the adventurous violinist Hannah Weirich (Ensemble Musikfabrik) and Ulrich Löffler, a pianist who doesn’t restrict himself to the classical grand piano, from Bach til today. Older works suddenly sound amazingly new, and new creations surprisingly historical. The sonata for violin and piano composed together (!) by Enno Poppe and Rebecca Saunders is just as extraordinary. Separated in space and time as they were, the two reacted to each other’s creations, in dialogue with chamber music classics by Mozart, Schumann, Brahms and more.

5.05 p.m. – VERDO Concert Hall, Double Concert Part Two
