Compositions by Charlotte Seither in Freiburg and Berlin

The composer, who died at a very young age, was the first woman to win the renowned Prix de Rome, and the asteroid Lilith is named after her. Seither’s composition was commissioned by GEDOK Freiburg in collaboration with the French Cultural Institute. The soloist is Akiko Okabe, piano. From the highest heights to the depths: Charlotte Seither’s orchestral work “Recherche sur le fond” (2010) will be performed for the first time in Berlin in the opening concert of the Ultraschall Festival 2019 on 16 January 2019. The piece was commissioned by Ensemblia Mönchengladbach in collaboration with Oper Krefeld und Mönchengladbach. It was awarded the Pfalzpreis für Musik 2012 as best orchestral work in the Theater Kaiserslautern. The work will be performed in Berlin with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester (DSO) conducted by Sylvain Cambreling. (photo: Marco Bussmann)
