News - In memoriam Hans Werner Henze

by Peter Andersen
Thursday, April 17, 2014
The Munich Philharmonic and conductor Markus Stenz will honour Hans Werner Henze, the founder of the Munich Biennale, who died in October 2012 at the age of 86 years, with a memorial concert on May 10. The programme encompasses some of Henze’s finest late works: Sebastian im Traum was the last of his works and is based on verses by Georg Trakl; he was able to experience the work in concert only a fortnight before his death. Nebelheim und Sonnenland is a concert suite from his youth opera Gisela! that was recently arranged by Jobst Liebrecht. Nebelheim und Sonnenland features some of the most appealing scenes of the opera and is a welcome broadening of the youth and amateur orchestra repertoire.
