Uncanny noises in the dark – who or what is it? What is it all about with an old magic vase in the residence castle? And what does it sound like in Jessen on a Wednesday afternoon? The 8 to 16-year-old pupils of the Dresden composers’ class and the composers Silke Fraikin, Johannes Korndörfer, Annette Schlünz and Bernd Schumann dealt with these questions. The sound collective Opus Eins will rehearse the new works together with the young composers and perform them under the direction of Eckehard Stier.
Under the guidance of the composers Silke Fraikin, Johannes Korndörfer, Annette Schlünz and Bernd Schumann, the 8 to 16-year-old pupils studied the sounds of their city and created compositions such as “Klang-Spuren-Suche” (Laura Fantana, born 2007), “Mittwoch Mittag in Jessen” (Jonas Kerda, born 2007), “Meine Heimat? (Elias Krauße, born 2006) or “Zeitsprünge” (Hannah Katterfeld, born 2005).
The sound collective Opus Eins will rehearse the new works together with the young composers and premiere them under the direction of Eckehard Stier. Anna Palimina (soprano), Marlen Bieber (mezzo-soprano), Cornelius Uhle (baritone), Daniel Rothe (clarinet), Philipp Zeller (bassoon), Florian Mayer (violin) and Michael Poscharsky (double bass) will perform.
