Harp: Xavier de Maistre
Bayer-Philharmoniker
Direction: Bernhard Steiner

(New date for the cancelled representation originally scheduled for May 17, 2020)

Xavier de Maistre is the most important harpist of our days: It is thanks to him that the harp has found its place on the concert stages of the world as a solo instrument. Since he gave up his position as principal harpist of the Vienna Philharmonic in 2010 to devote himself to his solo career, Xavier de Maistre has been a welcome guest of many internationally renowned orchestras and appears with artist colleagues such as Rolando Villazón, Mojca Erdmann and Diana Damrau. François-Adrien Boieldieu's Concerto for Harp and Orchestra is one of the best-known works of the harp literature and will be framed by compositions by Leoš Janáček, Gaetano Donizetti and the fanfare from Paul Dukas ballet La Péri in the concert with the Bayer Philharmonic Orchestra.

December 15, 2020 / 9 am and 11 am
Laterna Musica: The Clarinet and the Book of Dreams

Tuesday, December 15, 2020, 9 am und 11 am
Erholungshaus, Großer Saal
Price: 5 Euro
Children: 5 Euro


For grades 3 to 6

Clarinet: Ib Hausmann
Piano: Christoph Ullrich

(New date for the cancelled representation originally scheduled for June 16, 2020)

A cave explorer discovers a crystal cavern where he finds a curious treasure chest that contains only The Book of Dreams. A mysterious Pierrot turns up. Won’t he speak “normally”? Can’t he speak “normally”? Why does he speak only through his clarinet? The explorer tries to solve the mystery. Through the thrilling story, the two professional musicians show what can be done with musical instruments. Ib Hausmann makes his clarinet laugh, cry, and even speak. Without saying a word, he speaks through the sound of his instrument – “clarinetish,” if you will – and it’s a safe bet that everyone will understand him immediately.

As always, the show will be preceded by a workshop for teachers, which is recommended especially for those who are teaching outside their subject area.

December 16, 2020 / 7:30 pm
Benjamin Schaefer Quartett

Wednesday, December 16, 2020, 7:30 pm 
Erholungshaus, Großer Saal
Price: 10 Euro


Stone Flowers (working title)

Composer, piano: Benjamin Schaefer 

The other players will be announced after the season begins.

(New date for the cancelled representation originally scheduled for May 08, 2020)

Benjamin Schaefer, pianist and composer, was our first stART artist whose specialty was jazz. Now we’re eager to find out what he’s done in the meantime, and we’ve invited him to Leverkusen with his current project. It’s so new that there is hardly any information about it, but the unusual instrumentation sounds very promising: soprano to subcontrabass flute, tuba, piano/Rhodes piano, and drums. “The name ‘Stone Flowers’ is inspired in part by my favorite record from Antonio Carlos Jobim, and even more so, by the contradictory concepts that are joined in the title,” as Benjamin Schaefer explains the current working title. With respect to instrumentation, he says: “This combination of instruments creates fascinating aural impressions between acoustic and quasi-electronic, synthesizer-like sounds.”

We’ll provide more details on our website and in our brochure after the season begins.
