Music lovers can look forward to another edition of "Internationales Musik Festival Hamburg". Artists from Hamburg, Germany, Europe and the world join forces to perform concerts, ranging from all-time classics to contemporary compositions.
The 2018 edition of the festival opened with a performance of Beethoven’s “Missa Solemnis” by the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra. Other highlights included the Verdi Requiem performed by the choir and orchestra of the Scala opera house in Milan, several arias by American mezzo soprano Joyce DiDonato, and concerts of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. Finally, there was the world premiere of Jan Dvořák’s Gothic opera “Frankenstein”.
The programme also paid homage to the music of Karlheinz Stockhausen, one of the most important post-war German composers.
