The Altonaer Singakademie appears in the Laeiszhalle Grand Hall with music by three Hamburg composers. Mendelssohn's spine-chilling drama »Walpurgisnacht« leaves nothing out: witches and demons, Druids and »sanctimonious Christians«, screech owls and wild white storks are all part of a round dance where heathen religion and Christianity collide. The young organist and composer Thomas Emanuel Cornelius in turn raises questions of a philosophical nature in »Lux Aeterna«, juxtaposing the theological dimension of light with the physical one. After his »Agnus Dei« was extremely well received in the Cologne Philharmonie in 2017, his new composition »Lux Aeterna« will have its first performance in Germany tonight.
