Welcome back in a new season...

Cruel awakening!!
Only some months ago
, we all tried to keep looking forward into a promissing post-corona time,
and then had to face a next monster, sitting in the Kremlin and threatening with violence and crime
a peaceful country and it's people -
and meanwhile and us all with a cold winter and many threatening things more!


But, I trust that we will not only overcome this winter, but will also experience, that this new monster loses and clears the way for a POST-PUTIN world, which will inevitably arise at the horizon.

And for the time being, I wish to all of us, that - despite inflation and energy-saving necessities - 
there will be reason to enjoy a lot of live music!


In October  2022 - cordially your's

 


ROBERTO PROSSEDADA
 

 



 

 
 

On October 22,  Prosseda started his German concert season 22/23 in the Liederhalle Stuttgart in front of an enthused audience of 1.800 people. With the Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra,  he playedy the Concerto for Pedal Piano & Orchestra by Charles Gounod, which had been cancelled due to Corona in January 2022.

The recordings of the Variations and Klavierstücke to complete his Mozart recordings have been finalized. DECCA plans to release the already recorded Piano sonatas together with the new CDs in an edition of all Mozart's piano works in a box of 10 CDs.
As a first separate Double- CD, the Variations could be on the market before Christmas.


In addition to his work as artistic director of Piano Experience, the piano section of the international fair Cremona Musica, Prosseda has created 2 other festivals as artistic director: The Patmos Chamber Music Festival and the Ascoli Piceno festival.
 
Aside, Prosseda strengthened and extended his new online series entitled "The Professional Pianist", already started in February, in the frame of which he regularly publishes short videos demonstrating on the piano different aspects of the pianistic work, which he considers interesting and important.

LUCA LOMBARDI



 



His new compositon for Sir Andras Schiff commissioned by Klavierfestival Ruhr "Novembernacht"  will be premiered in June 2023 in the frame of the Klavierfestival in Bochum.

Finally, he returned to work upon his current opera project, which he had to let aside for a while due to other commissions:
"OFER - Till the end of the land", the libretto of which is based upon the novel by Man Booker-Prize winner David Grossmann.

There are also several projects for new commissions,
among them a new concert and a new Chamber Music work for 2023.

Finally,  in view the climate change problem,  he's planning to complement his compositions "Terra" and "Mare" by "Vento" and "Sole" to become a 'Symphony of Elements'.

SCHLOMO MINTZ
   
    
Shlom Mintz' concert with  Würth Philharmonics, originally planned for May 15, 2021, but cancelled due to the Corona restrictions, has been realized on  Oktober 22, 2022!
Shlomo Mintz performed the Violin Concerto by Dvorak.


We're happy, that our work for Schlomo Mintz, which with this concert will provisorily come to an end, has been emphasized with this beautiful event.

GÜNTER A. BUCHWALD

      Info Silent movies from Japan
On August 6, Buchwald began his 22/23 season in France by conducting the Octuor de France for the world premiere of the chamber music version of his film score to Murnau's legendary "Nosferatu".

On teh occasion of a series of film concerts at the silent film festival Le Giornate of Cinema Muto /Italy, Buchwald  happily  could held in his hands the long-awaited DVD/Bluray of the legendary silent film "CASANOVA" synchronized with his original music, produced for the Cinémathèque Francaise by the US company Flicker Alley.
It should also be available on the European market by the end of the year.


Regrettably, Putin's war has prevented a film concert of "Casanova" originally planned for the spring in Moscow - and that will probably remain so for quite a while ...
It's a pity: director, main actors and almost the entire crew were Russians, who emigrated to Paris, and a part of the film is set at the court of the great Catherine in St. Petersburg (see cover photo of the DVD).
In a sense, a largely Russian work of art would have 'come home' with this concert.
One of the many human losses, the man in the Kremlin doesn't care about!


In the meantime, Buchwald has launched conducting a mimi series with films by Chaplin.

Buchwald has also profited from his forced 'time out' to work upon an arrangenment of Bizet's "L'Arlesienne" to be recorded with Octuor de France, and a compilation of "Carmen" to be performed with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Bruxelles.

He's also preparing 2 film concerts with Japanese Silent Movies for  "Japanische Fillmtage"
presented by the general Consulate of Japan in Düsseldorf.
Together with the well known German clarinettist Helmut Eisel, he will accompany the screening of  "Jüdisches Glück" (after the novel  by Shoelm Alejchem) in Zürich and Freiburg.

Finally, in March 23 he will conduct the film orchestra of Freiburger Philharmoniker to peform Shostkovitch' music for teh Russian silent movie "The new Babylon".




DVD-Democopies of Buchwalds film concerts with Murnaus "Nosferatu" and "Faust", the Hollywood production "The Wind" and the Japanese silent movies "Sumiko" and "Express 300 Miles" are available.

The world premiere of an orchestra version of the original soundtrack Betty initially composed for Giora Feidman and the Arditti String Quartet to accompany the screening of the famous German silent Movie  "Der Golem", was the only LIVE event taking place and presented on the legendary "Potemkin Steps" in the frame the only digitally organized Int. Odessa Film Festival/Ukraine.

experience"
!
