Between dreams and reality

Am I dreaming or is this real? In »Somnia«, the music spirits you away to an enchanted world. As in a dream, you sometimes feel threatened. But before you wake up in the middle of a nightmare, Ensemble Resonanz gently brings you back from the edge. The chamber music ensemble plays music from five centuries in this imaginative concert. It is accompanied by two circus performers with a good head for heights, who move skilfully to the music and, together with the musicians, provide a few surprises as well.

»Twinkle Concerts« is the series of children’s concerts at the Elbphilharmonie that brings the most successful productions from all over Europe to Hamburg. At times funny and playful, at others thoughtful and reflective, the series introduces children to the world of music in a special and unique way.
