Symphonic brass music with the theme »Les Ballets Russes – La création de Serge Diaghilev«
Musical director: Michael Kummer
Musical masterpieces from a golden age of ballet are featured here: the »Ballets Russes« is regarded as one of the most important ballet ensembles of the 20th century. It was founded in 1909 by the Russian impresario Serge Diaghilev and worked under his leadership first in Paris and later in Monte Carlo. Diaghilev’s goal was to create awareness in Europe about Russian art. He followed the principle L’art pour l’art, or art for art’s sake, without reference to the political reality of the time. The company’s choreographers laid the foundation for modern ballet, while dancers such as Vaslav Nijinsky and Anna Pavlova became international stars of the ballet scene.
The symphonic wind orchestra consists of about 65 ambitious amateur musicians of the highest level from all over Bavaria. The project-related musical preparation for concerts, radio or sound recordings takes place in intensive weekend rehearsal periods. Further information under www.abo-muc.de
