With »New Classics Live«, the audience can look forward to a journey into fantastic worlds of sound: Covering a broad spectrum of works – from neo-classical and minimal music to orchestral film music, this concert highlights the many facets of a young classical music that breathes the spirit of the age. Interpreted by Olga Scheps at the piano and the Prague Royal Philharmonic orchestra, haunting melodies, beguiling harmonies and repetitive, overlapping structures weave into a dense carpet of sound that opens up new musical dimensions.
You will hear excerpts from the impressive work of film music composer and Hollywood mastermind Hans Zimmer as well as the hypnotic, enraptured works of Max Richter. The compositions of Erik Satie, ever playful, are an accomplished waking dream, while the music of Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi invites to meditation and inner contemplation.
Interspersed with these masterpieces of modernity, popular pieces from various eras, such as the intoxicating »Boléro« by Ravel, Debussy’s dream-like »Claire de lune« and Barber’s elegiac Adagio round off this multifarious evening.
