About the Concert
Gabriel Fauré is still one of the most underrated French composers in this country. Reason enough for our Philharmoniker:innen to put his Piano Quintet No. 1 on the programme and juxtapose its colourfulness and airy melodies with some works from the Far East. Among them "Between the Tides" by the Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu, a fascinating sound image of coming and going water. Our cellist Rainer Promnitz has also been inspired by the landscape and in general by what he experienced in Japan and lets us participate in impressions of a Far Eastern garden.
