R.WAGNER – Flying Dutchman

.

In Braunschweig theatre ships are being installed and sails spread out – all pieces of set design are being put together so to help the Opera ensemble and Srba Dinic in presenting the new opera premiere – Wagner’s Flying Dutchman.
The story of a cursed seaman who roams the seas and wishes to do penance through love inspired Wagner to write the opera which will move music boundaries. In addition to music and libretto which he always wrote himself, Wagner introduced overlapping leitmotivs which help us understand the opera as a unique entity. Wagner is one of the most important German composers and it is a privilege to listen to his work in a German opera house with a long standing tradition such as Theater Braunschweig. It is pleasure to put all segments of his opera in a unique art piece which will be done by Isabel Osterman by directing it and Srba Dinic through music and artistic experience.

SYMPHONIC CONCERT, WOLFSBURG 14/9/2018

.

Premiere, performances, concerts… although the season has only started, positive reviews and sell-outs already announce a successful season for Staatsorchester Braunschweig and their GMD Srba Dinić. They are preparing a special concert for Wolfsburg audience where they will perform Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms. The title of the concert is Leonora, after Beethoven’s overture no. 3 which will open the concert. Of the three Leonora overture compositions, this one is believed to be the most beautiful because it brings the story to the culmination and celebrates humanism and heroes. The audience will recognize the same motives coloured with more lyrical moments in Brahms’s First Symphony which is seen by many as a sequel to Beethoven’s nine symphonies, bearing in mind the deep love and respect Brahms cherished for Beethoven. The orchestra demonstrate all their qualities regularly at symphonic concerts, however it is a special event when one of the members introduces themselves as soloists. At this concert it will be Salomo Schweizer solo oboist of the orchestra. He will perform Mozart’s concert in C-major, which is very popular in the arrangement for flute due to its singableness, but in this case the concert will have a warm musical expression characteristic for Schweizer’s playing. For Srba Dinic and Staatsorchester Braunschweig this will be another opportunity to display all the qualities of joint playing and mutual support.
