The recently founded association “Chamber Music Worlds” wishes to establish a new series of concerts in Vogtland. It will begin under the slogan “The worlds of chamber music in Vogtland – Music in the countryside”, announced Sarah Stamboltsyan, general manager of the association.

The basic idea of ​​the project is to build a musical network between different places in the country, said singer and pianist Sarah Stamboltsyan, who also launched the “Calliope Chamber Music Series”. But unlike Calliope, the focus is particularly on rural areas. “We want to help local artists develop their careers and at the same time make rural places attractive to the international music scene,” said the singer, citing other goals of the project, which is supported by the cultural foundation of the Free State within the framework of the financing of small projects. “Our association wishes to make known the palaces, churches, castles and museums of Vogtland beyond the borders of our region. The ‘Chamber Music Worlds’ concert series thus becomes a platform for international exchange. offerings through our concerts Enrich the place, ”said Sarah Stamboltsyan.

Initially, three concerts are planned. “It is a day that can ring” is the title of the program of the first concert, which will be presented next Friday at 7 pm at the Schlosskirche Netzschkau. Meet the internationally renowned Berlin soprano Ani Taniguchi. She is accompanied on the piano and organ by Sarah Stamboltsyan. “The program was created during the lockdown period. The sacred and secular arias and songs are supplemented by poems and aim to put the audience in different emotional situations and universes: from sadness to hope to joy, ”explains the artist from Reichenbach.

The second program, “Saxony. Music. History” on October 23, focuses on the tradition of music fairs organized by artists such as Felix Mendelssohn and his sister Fanny Hensel, Robert Schumann and his wife Clara. In this context, the role of women is particularly emphasized, because it is they who once established the tradition of music salon concerts and brought together little-known works by contemporary composers to the public. The duo Anna Tyshaeva (piano) and Michel Gerschwin (violin) perform works by German romantics.

With a third event, the traditional Ketzels-Mühle concerts on the Göltzschtalbrücke are to be reissued.

Tickets and more information on locations and times for each event are available on 03765 ​​69579.
