Chamber Music

The perfect interplay of music and architecture: in György Ligeti’s choral work Lux aeterna, a soft, sensual sound emerges as if from nowhere, creating a mystical, floating maelstrom. It fits perfectly with the mystical atmosphere created by the bluish half-light inside the Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtnis Kirche. The piece makes the highest vocal demands on the performers, ideal for such an excellent vocal ensemble as the Rias Kammerchor Berlin, which can also be heard in this concert in works by Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály.
