The Mahler Chamber Orchestra returns to Ludwigsburg with an innovative project. Following last year's thought-provoking exploration of sustainability in "Les Adieux," we return with our virtual reality project "Future Presence".
Three days long, the audience at the Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele is invited to immersive themselves in a magical dreamworld created by William Shakespeare, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and the MCO. In "Future Presence III: Mendelssohn Orchestra", we can present a full orchestra playing excerpts from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" as an immersive experience. With the help of VR goggles and headphones, the listener can experience the theatre, music and orchestra from a never before seen closeness.
On the third day, a chamber music concert with MCO musicians presents a concert exploring Hungarian atmospheres. Compositions by Hungarian composers Ernst von Dohnányi and Zoltán Kodály will be paired with a String Trio by Franz Schubert. Notably influenced by the captivating Hungarian musical style, Schubert's composition beautifully intertwines with the works of his Hungarian counterparts, forging a captivating musical dialogue that transcends time and borders.
