The festival theme around the myth of Orpheus is beautifully highlighted in this concert. Music has the power to guide the transition from life to death, but does it also apply the other way around? Who would you like to bring to life with music? And how can that one glance determine everything?

We also find that in the music of this concert. Johannes Brahms, for example, composed Vier Ernste Gesänge, op.121 (1896) as a reaction to the death of his good friend Clara Schumann. And what do you hear in John Cage's 4'33 ”?

Ensemble Carole and Brullare will perform a medieval work that matches the theme.
