Neue Meister concert III: DRIVEN By Inspiration
For the third time now, we join with DRIVE and the Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin (DKO) to present the concert series Neue Meister. United under the banner DRIVEN by Inspiration, star fiddler Nigel Kennedy and composers like Ben Palmer, Elena Kats-Chernin, Francesco Tristano and Arash Safaian introduce their pieces. Another new DRIVE tradition: Some of the works to be performed were composed especially for this evening.
DRIVEN by Inspiration drives artists and composers alike into the arms of their great role models. As Johann Sebastian Bach brought together differing elements and various styles from all over Europe, the artists of the Neue Meister concert employ contemporary devices to engage with music by the great masters of the past – while keeping track of current musical developments.
Nigel Kennedy takes a selection of pieces from his new album My World and gives us a double premiere. It is his debut as a composer – and this is the premiere performance of his compositions.
