In the “Saisonkonzerte” category the 2017-2018 season contains 2 x five Akademie concerts, 1 concert in the series “Gott und die Welt” and our BACHBEWEGT SINGEN! family concert. As in previous years there are the traditional Akademie concerts in the Beethoven-Saal of the Liederhalle, the Bachakademie’s major subscription series with sacred music and oratorios from the 17th to the 21st centuries.
With “Gott und die Welt” the Bachakademie Stuttgart has launched a format which presents unconventional programmes in selected locations separately from the Akademie concerts in the Liederhalle. It is highly likely that concerts in this series will run quite differently from “classical” concerts. Surprising changes in location or perspective are just as likely as a combination of music and image. The aim is clear: a lively dialogue between musicians and audiences, without the blinkers of accepted tastes or limits on content. It might even be about God and the world...
The high point of the project BACHBEWEGT! SINGEN! is a major family concert, suitable for all ages, in which all 250 children perform together with the Gaechinger Cantorey and the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen under the overall artistic direction of Prof. Hans-Christoph Rademann. In this concert the participating schools will present Karsten Gundermann’s new version of "Die Jahreszeiten", together with the professional ensembles on stage.
For the Akademie concerts, the Communicating Music programme BACHBEWEGT! SINGEN! and the concert »Gott und die Welt«, general ticket sales open on 7 August 2017.
