Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg / Kent Nagano

2. Internationales Musikfest Hamburg

Not only arrangements but also acoustics make a piece of music when performed. One of the first to experiment with effects like reverberation and stereo sound were the cantors of San Marco of Venice in the 16th century. Among them was Giovanni Gabrieli, who positioned choirs on different galleries for the sake of acoustic effects. Kent Nagano now puts his »Canzones sacrae« together with Pierre Boulez‘ »Répons« und Brahms’ »A German Requiem« on stage.
