ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Starting in 2024, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra (MCO) will take over the Artistic Direction of the renowned Musikwoche Hitzacker for five years. Titled, aus Leidenschaft (Out of Passion) the festival's 38th edition will reflect the MCO's own passion for music and their wish to engage in an active dialogue with audiences and the festival itself.
The drama of Passiontide is condensed into an intense chamber music experience titled Leiden und Leidenschaft (Suffering and passion). The programme will include excerpts from Bach's St John Passion for tenor solo, harpsichord, organ and percussion.
