Summermusik: Sounds of Water
The grand finale of Summermusik 2022 is a multi-sensatory experience.
The grand finale of Summermusik 2022 is a multi-sensatory experience. “Sounds of Water” starts with one of the most famous pieces of music of all time – the Blue Danube Waltz. This chain of five waltzes creates the illusion to be lifted off the floor – or to float on water. Chinese composer Tan Dun is famous as the composer of the music to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The solo instrument in his Water Concerto is – water. Percussionist Yuri Yamashita joins the CCO to create a fascinating and magical sound world in an audio-visual performance where audiences will find themselves listening with their eyes and watching with their ears.
The season ends with music by the master of French musical impressionism – Claude Debussy. His ultimate masterpiece La Mer (“The Sea”) was inspired by Hokusai’s “The Great Wave Off Kanagawa” and reflects on his tumultuous personal life at the time. In it he paints images of wind and sea in vivid and imaginative orchestral colors and textures that were revolutionary at the time, and are still captivating now – 115 years later.
