He is regarded as the enfant terrible of classical music and radiates charisma like no other: Teodor Currentzis. Following his spectacular debut at the Laeiszhalle at the beginning of 2016, he returns to Hamburg. Together with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and his opera chorus from Perm, which has earned an international reputation since he began his tenure there, Currentzis brings Luciano Berio’s fascinating work »Coro« on stage. This is preceded by »Lux aeterna«, an a capella work by György Ligeti that plays with fluctuating sound worlds. »Call«, another work by Berio, features in the first half of the concert, while enchanting Canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan takes the leading role in »Lonely Child«, composer Claude Vivier’s – who likewise called Canada his home – long song of solitude.
