About the Concert

"Only those who grow up and remain children are human," Erich Kästner once asserted, and he kept to it himself. His novel "Pünktchen und Anton" is about deception, responsibility and the power of unconditional friendship. And about a saving blow with a wooden club.
To turn the book into a musical story for the Kästner Year 2024, Pünktchen and Anton meet an entire symphony orchestra. The music brings the lively Berlin of the 1930s to life, as do the characters in the novel, including Pünktchen's dachshund Piefke.

Biographies

Ulrich Kern

“Magical, enchanting!” wrote La Provence about Ulrich Kern’s interpretation of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Ulrich Kern is distinguished by his stylistically confident interpretations on opera and concert stages and is besides passionately committed to the music of the 20th and 21st centuries. Born in Stuttgart, the internationally acclaimed conductor studied at the music academies in Stuttgart and Weimar. He received further decisive impulses from Bernard Haitink, Jorma Panula and, in the USA, from David Zinman.
