The February symphony concert traditionally comes up with a special selection of programs. This time we invite you on a journey into musical intermediate worlds. No, this does not mean half-worlds or half-silky worlds, but rather music that is so diverse, so full of different shades of color that it is difficult to assign it to one of the established categories.
First of all there is the composer Wynton Marsalis. Never heard? It doesn't matter! Even our dramaturg, who were always well informed, first had to request tuition from the first conductor Jakob Brenner. Namely, who, in addition to his love of classical music, is also at home in jazz, big band sound, film music and numerous other styles, has discovered that the New Orleans-born jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis is not only world-class as a musician, but also also wrote an incredibly beautiful, exciting, multicoloured violin concerto. From the idea of performing this composition in Chemnitz to the enthusiastic acceptance of concertmaster Heidrun Sandmann to take on the solo part, it was almost a blink of an eye.After all, in recent years she has repeatedly made violin concertos beyond the mainstream sound with her instrument.
George Gershwin, Franz Waxman and Erich Wolfgang Korngold are also represented as cross-border composers. For his musical Girl Crazy, Gershwin was strongly oriented towards jazz. Korngold is highly valued as a classical composer, but his successes as a film composer are almost greater. The secret recipe for this was probably that he used his late romantic roots as a starting point for the opera as well as for the film, for example for the music for The Adventures of Robin Hood . Waxman also wrote film music with a classical background and gave the audience unforgettable goosebumps then and now (for example with Billy Wilder's masterpiece Sunset Boulevard ).
