A superb marriage
of nostalgia and modernity

Jonas Kaufmann's
great comeback

A superb marriage of nostalgia and modernity, Baden-Baden exudes an extraordinary charm. From the lovely Old Town, perched on a hill, you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the Rhine valley. When the weather is clear, you can even see the blue outline of the Vosges mountains. Near the Oos River, down below, the Belle Epoque town and its superb residential houses are neatly spread out. There’s no resisting the urge to stroll along Lichtenaler Allée. Walking from Leopoldplatz, we will wander up the luxurious Sophienstrasse, then stroll along the sumptuous English garden edged by the water, which gathers together 300 different species of trees. Finally, in step with 19th century tradition, we will reach the magnificent Lichtenthal Abbey located 2 kilometres from the centre.

 

The walk is ideal for quiet contemplation, although there may be a tangible undertone of impatience, since music lovers will see tenor Jonas Kaufmann make his great comeback that very evening at the Festspielhaus with its exceptional acoustics, for the exclusive première of his new programme! Crowning the trip, the excellent German conductor Thomas Hengelbrock will perform an exhilarating version of Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony  the next day.

Your program

Saturday 1 February – Baden-Baden

 

6.00 pm at the Festspielhaus:

 

JONAS KAUFMANN

 

Prague Philharmonic

 

Jochen Rieder : Conductor

Jonas Kaufmann : Tenor

 

He hardly needs an introduction… Jonas Kaufmann is THE leading singer of our time: the international star popular among the general public and most discerning critics alike. The German tenor can do everything: vocal pyrotechnics and deeply interiorised theatrical embodiments. He sings in Italian, French, and of course German, with that dark and ardent colour that is his alone. We don’t know the exact programme of his recital yet, but the audience of the Baden-Baden Festspielhause will be the first to discover it in this world exclusive!

 

Sunday 2 February – Baden-Baden

 

5.00 pm at the Festspielhaus:

 

THOMAS HENGELBROCK

 

Balthasar-Neumann Ensemble

 

Thomas Hengelbrock : Conductor

 

– L.v. Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 in F major Op. 68; Mass in C major Op. 86

 

Created on 22 December 1808 (alongside the Symphony No. 5!), Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 is a bright testimony to life in the countryside. In the key of F major, which brings a spring-like colour, the “Pastoral Symphony” is certainly the most radiant one in Beethoven’s corpus. Here, nature is associated with free, joyful existence unhampered by metaphysical concerns or artistic torments. An indisputable specialist of the German composer, the great conductor Thomas Hengelbrock combines this marvel of musical suggestion with the rare Mass in C minor, a wonderful forerunner of the great Missa Solemnis.
