„Fire Ice“ – The Dresden Music Festival 2015The 38th Dresden Music Festival invites guests from all over the world from 13th May to 7th June 2015 to enjoy high class music experiences, performed at both traditional and unusual concert venues. For the motto “Fire Ice” the director Jan Vogler found inspiration in the contrasts between North and South and in the question of how lifestyles, tempers and spirits as well as the climate might influence the music.
The result is a varied and fresh programme in which North and South often encounter each other and create interesting contrasts, like for example the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra performing works by Handel and Mozart. Further highlights will be the Philadelphia Orchestra under Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the Venice Baroque Orchestra, the Dresden Festival Orchestra under Ivor Bolton and the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra, Avi Avital, Hélène Grimaud, the Portuguese fado singer Mariza and many others more.
Again in 2015, the Dresden Music Festival will turn unusual locations into concert venues. Right at the beginning, the Messe Dresden will transform into a concert hall and host the opening gala. The programme will also be full of contrasts: after a first part with classical music performed by the Festival Orchestra under Ivor Bolton and soprano singer Simone Kermes, students will take the stage and present their project “Let`s Dance! Carmen”.
Here, you find the complete programme of the 38th Dresden Music Festival 2015. Combine it with our city tour Dresden to a melodious city trip.
