Lights off, sound on

A foretaste of the 100th RSB season in 2023/2024 is offered by two concerts at the Haus des Rundfunks that bring radio, music and orchestral history to life in a sensual way by presenting music that was composed or specially arranged for the new medium almost one hundred years ago. This includes works by Hindemith and Weill – two radio pioneers par excellence. In particular, the excerpts from the “Threepenny Opera” will be heard in the version that Bertolt Brecht recorded in 1930 especially for the radio medium, complete with connecting commentary.
In addition, there will be selected music by Eisler and Schnittke because – although composed later – they also follow the principle of making what is usually visible audible. The excerpts from the two film scores, which were as new as they were experimental at the time, captivate with their extraordinary musical impressiveness.
