  • Igor Stravinsky: "Petrushka"
  • Marcus Imbsweiler and Timo J. Herrmann
  • Concert, Literature

Having previously only appeared with smaller works, Igor Stravinsky established his worldwide fame in Paris in the 1910s with the ballet triad Firebird, Petrushka and Le sacre du printemps. In Petrushka, Stravinsky tells the story of three puppets who mysteriously come to life at a fair. In order to characterize the individual figures and to relate them dramaturgically to one another, he makes use of a fascinating compositional collage technique.

Timo Jouko Herrmann and Marcus Imbsweiler are two enthusiasts who have their very own linguistic approach to music.
Imbsweiler has previously published novels and short stories about composers from Haydn to Shostakovich.
Herrmann is guest conductor of the Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra; his rediscovery of the song of joy “Per la ricuperata salute di Ofelia”, composed by Salieri, Mozart and Cornetti, made him famous worldwide.
