A new Song of the Earth

»Let’s do something new,« said Dave Longstreth of the Dirty Projectors and André de Ridder, leader of the experimental Berlin orchestra collective stargaze, when they met at the Sydney Festival in 2013. And indeed, the composer and frontman of the famous American rock band kept his word: Following one of his recent singles »Earth Crisis«, he now created »Song of the Earth in Crisis« for the musicians of Stargaze. Longstreth, who founded the Dirty Projectors back in 2002 in New York, explains: »In the 111 years since Gustav Mahler’s ›Song of the Earth‹ was first performed, our relationship to the earth has changed dramatically. So it seemed time to reframe that idea.«

Please note: The concert start time has been changed from 18:00 to 20:00. Tickets retain their validity, ticket buyers will be informed directly by e-mail.
