From Bach to Knigge


  • Johann Sebastian Bach / Ferruccio Busoni from the Partita in d minor: Chaconne
  • Gustav Mahler / Arnold Schoenberg Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen
  • Tristan Keuris Chamber concerto
  • Max Knigge Softly and lightly the moon face smiles
  • Guillermo Lago new work (world premiere)
  • to be determined Traditional
  • Anders Koppel / Max Knigge from the Concert for violin and accordion: Allegro scherzando

LUDWIG sets the stage for spring with a beautiful program from three centuries. First, the dazzling Chaconne from Bach's Second Violin Partita. Then we follow the unhappily in love wanderer who lets Gustav Mahler wander through nature in his Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen. Then music by "a Dutch romantic" who died in 1996, Tristan Keuris, for a solo instrument rarely heard in the concert hall. In Keuris' Chamber Concerto, the accordion plays a starring role. The player is Vincent van Amsterdam, a Dutch grandmaster on the instrument.

It is obvious that the paths of Ludwig and the Dutch composer and viola player Max Knigge (1984) will cross here. Knigge: "For me, good music is adventurous, exciting and rich in sound. I try to create an individual sound for each ensemble, in which I enjoy working closely with the performers. An additional fact is that the character of the musician determines an important part of the composition process: it is incredibly inspiring to work with inspired musicians!'

Guillermo Lago is the composing alter ego of Willem van Merwijk. He has recently added a new work to his now extensive oeuvre of over 60 adventurous and groundbreaking compositions, which will have its world premiere here.
