"Im Atem der Zeit" – Music for solo clarinet
Thematically, the repertoire on this album sweeps across four centuries of music, from an allemande by J. S. Bach to 21st century compositions. The emphasis lies on the start of the 20th century however, with Syrinx by C. Debussy and on the Second World War period with Quartet for the End of Time by Olivier Messiaen. Yet the pièce de résistance is his interpretation of "For Simon – 4 pieces for clarinet in B-flat" by Austrian composer Ernst Ludwig Leitner, in which he borrows several themes from Gustav Mahler and Richard Wagner.
The evening kicks off at 5.30 pm with a champagne reception, while the concert takes place between 6 pm and 7.30 pm, with a brief intermission combined with a glass of champagne.
Next on offer is a three-course meal with a selection of wine, water and coffee and delicacies.
