Presentation of the creative project on the composer Brett Dean
Thu, 12 Mar 2015 6.30 p.m.
Philharmonie Hall Foyer
In this creative project of the Berliner Philharmoniker’s education programme for Berlin secondary schools, the starting point is a work that will be played on a concert by the Berlin Philharmonic Foundation. The focus of the pupils’ creative, interdisciplinary approach is the piece Recollections by the Australian composer Brett Dean. In his music he seizes on inspirations from the world surrounding us – because art is not created in a vacuum. He deals with aspects of remembering in his piece: sometimes deceptive, sometimes sugarcoating things or steeped in dark colours, experiences usually appear differently than they really were.
