“Let there be light” – under Kent Nagano’s baton, the work premiered in 2017 during the opening festivities of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie returns to this venue: Jörg Widmann’s oratorio “ARCHE”. Overwhelming and featuring a monumental cast, it is based on various texts by Heine, Schiller, Klabund and others, and proved a sensation upon its world premiere at the Main Auditorium. In the spirit of Beethoven himself, it was Widmann’s greatest wish that this piece, “coming from the heart, might return to the heart”.
