Political satire and music lesson? why not!


This afternoon we enjoyed an unusual mix of classical music lesson and political satire…Christian Ehring was moderating today’s programme  – Chopin and Milhaud – and in some way was able to stitch this together with the recent Lower Saxony elections, McAllister, Rösler and Brüderle!

Apart from the witzig introduction, the scene was truly multinational…Chopin, Polish but also French, Milhaud, French but also American, Mario Venzago, the Swiss conductor, the Tapiola Finnish orchestra, the pianist Lauma Skride from Latvia and Ehrlich (from Duisburg ah-ha!).

Chopin’s concerto for piano and orchestra N°2 and Milhaud’s Boeuf sur le Toit gave the orchestra a good spectrum to play with. Venzago added to the programme Sibelius for the Finnish touch and finished with the Rheinlaender Mendelssohn and his tarantella…which is not bad, on a Sunday night!
