Premieres of Works by Andrea Lorenzo Scartazzini

More than half of the “Mahler/Scartazzini Cycle” has already been performed in Jena: Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 and Andrea Lorenzo Scartazzini’s “Einklang” as well as the premiere of “Omen” and No. 6 can be heard in Jena on 23 March 2023; on 12 May 2023 part 7 of the cycle will have its first performance. The project which was initiated by Simon Gaudenz and the Jenaer Philharmonie began in 2018 and will be completed in 2025. Gustav Mahler and his works are, in Scartazzini’s words, “a counterpart that speaks to me even over a distance of more than 100 years … their world of thought, their construction, a certain movement; all these are impulses that in the end lead me to my own musical work.” The result is a colourful cycle of quite differing compositions. The Lucerne Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Michael Sanderling will premiere yet another commissioned work by Scartazzini, “WUNDE(R)” für Orchester in Lucerne on 12 April 2023 and then take it on tour to Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Hannover and Cologne.
