Introduction 60 minutes before the start of the event

Dmitri Shostakovich's 13th Symphony from the early 1960s already hints at the historical context with its nickname "Babi Yar": the massacre of tens of thousands of Jews by German forces in 1941 in the ravine of the same name near Kiev. With this symphony, Shostakovich finally threw off political shackles and showed himself to be an unwavering artist who unconditionally stood up for humanism and freedom with an incredibly stirring work. The fact that he combines instrumental music and song again for the first time since his Third - at least this parallel to Beethoven is obvious - may not be a coincidence against this background ...
"When love and strength unite, man's favour is worthy of the gods", is the almost incantatory conclusion to Ludwig van Beethoven's Fantasy for piano, choir and orchestra. The words of the poet Christoph Kuffner aptly describe what this comparatively unknown work by the Bonn composer is all about: Similar to the later Ninth Symphony, symphonic music and song "marry". And the orchestra, singers and piano enter into a new kind of partnership. The second half of the concert opens with a work for women's choir a cappella and solo violin: "Trisagion" by Ukrainian composer Iryna Aleksiychuk.
