Johannes Kalitzke, conductor

F. Liszt, Von der Wiege bis zum Grabe
N. Šenk, Concerto for Orchestra
P. Hindemith, Mathis der Maler

German composer and conductor Johannes Kalitzke (1959) studied the piano, conducting, composition and electronic music at the University of Music in his native Cologne. He also studied at the celebrated Parisian music institute IRCAM, where Vinko Globokar was among his mentors. As a composer, he dedicates himself mainly to opera, having created commissioned works for the Munich Biennale and the Viennese Theater an der Wien. Cofounder and leader of the ensemble MusikFabrik, Kalitzke has appeared as a conductor with the Munich Philharmonic and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, as well as with renowned contemporary music ensembles, such as Klangforum Wien, Collegium Novum Zürich and Ensemble Modern. Since 2015, he has been a professor of conducting at the Mozarteum in Salzburg.

We are delighted to entrust him with the leadership of a programme with a somewhat more modern conception. It opens with the last of Liszt’s thirteen symphonic poems, the musical form that this great nineteenth-century musical innovator introduced and developed into one of the most important musical forms of Romanticism.

The concert will conclude with a programmatic symphony by the German Neoclassical composer Paul Hindemith. Hindemith used the musical material from the symphony Mathis der Maler (Matthias the Painter) in his eponymous opera, which was written at the same time. The protagonist of the opera is the German Renaissance painter Matthias Grünewald.
