(CS) Friday sees the launch of the Philharmonie's brand new Aventure+ concept, fuzing classical and contemporary tunes with a chance for audiences to meet the people behind the music.
“Tristan goes to India” will feature music from the classic Wagner opera “Tristan und Isolde” performed by the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra together with pianist Joanna MacGregor.
The 19th Century opera will be paired with Olivier Messiaen's Turangalîla-Symphony, written in the late 1940s by the French composer, and inspired both by the Tristan and Isolde myth, as well as well as the Indian-Hindu music tradition from the 13th Century.
With Indian food and a tabla drum performance, the event also features a surprising delight for Radiohead fans. Performer Cynthia Miller will give an exclusive look into the Ondes Martenot instrument, used frequently by the UK band, following the concert.
Tickets for the evening are still available.
The Aventure+ series features three further concerts during the 2012/13 season:
