recreation - GROSSES ORCHESTER GRAZ
As Johann Sebastian Bach put it: “Music’s only purpose should be for the Glory of God and the recreation of the human spirit”. Recreation of the soul, that’s what the orchestra provides for its audience: refreshment, revival, recreation. Furthermore, recreation is what the musicians do: they reconstruct the process of creation by bringing an otherwise lifeless work of art back to life. Since 2002, the musicians of the “recreation” project have been working together in the “Großes Orchester Graz” and have been trying to find new ways to reach this goal.
A wonderful programme and also big news the new season will offer you:
- For our great orchestra cycle we have appointed six conductors – three gentlemen and three ladies.
- We have dreamt up a brand-new idea, called BIG.SOAP. An easygoing concert format with TV attributes.
- We also present our Baroque orchestra series at the Minoritensaal. This will be the fourth season of these stirring concerts on period instruments.
We have dreamt up a brand-new idea, called BIG.SOAP. Visitors of styriarte will know the SOAP as a very colourful, easygoing concert format with TV attributes. A mix of music and texts, captured by cameras and projected onto a big screen behind the stage so that the audience can finally also see what they hear. We will turn three performances in the Großer Orchesterzyklus cycle into SOAP versions, with a marvellous narrator and presenter. Those, who feel that orchestra concerts are too stiff, will definitely be happy here…
A film team accompanied our orchestra in rehearsals and the concert “Drei Klassiker” on March 7 and 8, 2016, at Stefaniensaal.
The result, a wonderful, interesting film about the creation of a concert beginning with the first rehearsals ending with the concert, we show you in this trailer.
