When Helmut Lachenmann's "Tanzsuite mit Deutschlandlied", composed in 1980, actually quotes or at least alludes to Haydn's Imperial Quartet at some point towards the end, it has long been clear that no anthem is being sung here. And there can be no talk of dancing in this piece by one of the central composers of the past decades. In this provocative work, which of course was once premiered in Donaueschingen and is performed here with the help of the sensational Quatuor Diotima string quartet from Paris, Lachenmann was concerned with sounds, with breaks, with the question of what a sound actually is.
And Camille Saint-Saëns' "Organ Symphony" also poses this question - albeit in a different way. Iveta Apkalna, titular organist of the Elbphilharmonie, will make the Great Hall resound with 69 stops and 4,765 pipes. The French composer said promisingly about his last symphony: "With it, I gave everything I could give ... I will never write anything like this work again."

Venue: Elbphilharmonie, Grand Hall, Platz der Deutschen Einheit 4, 20457 Hamburg
