Elbphilharmonie Hamburg Großer Saal

CANCELLED: Simone Kermes

The programme for this event has had to be changed as a result of the coronavirus situation

Cardinal Sins and Virtues

Concerts at the Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle are currently subject to coronavirus-related restrictions. This event is therefore going ahead with an amended programme and reduced seating capacity. Ticket buyers and subscribers will be informed directly. There will be two concerts on 15 October 2020 at 18:30 and 21:00.

The seven deadly sins and the seven virtues offer enough material for walls full of pictures and several yards of bookshelves: be it in art, film or music, these elementary human needs and desires and the attempts to control them always make for a good story. For her latest aria compilation, Simone Kermes, known for her well thought-out theme programmes, did research in libraries round the world and found some interesting scores. Among them were hitherto unknown baroque arias, highly virtuoso and touching at the same time. In tonight's concert she also follows new paths, presenting popular modern pieces in baroque guise.
