Dresden Music Festival 2024 – “Horizons” (May 2024)

The Dresden Music Festival begins a four-week celebration of music in all its facets and genres: on May 9 with a historically informed concertante performance of Richard Wagner’s “Die Walküre” with the Dresden Festival Orchestra and Concerto Köln at Kulturpalast, conducted by Kent Nagano. This concert is part of “The Wagner Cycles”, a project by the Dresden Music Festival under the overall artistic direction of Kent Nagano and Jan Vogler (Intendant of the Dresden Music Festival) which will bring all parts of Wagner’s Ring in historically informed concert performances to the stage until 2026. “The Wagner Cycles” will be continued with “Siegfried” in 2025.

Next concerts of the opening weekend: On May 10, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under the baton of Klaus Mäkelä at Kulturpalast with Bruckners 5th Symphony, on May 11 Francesco Piemontesi’s piano recital at Palais im Großen Garten and the jazz-funk band Lehmanns Brothers at Reithalle Dresden and on May 12, with “Musica non grata” presenting two almost forgotten female composers (Amélie Nikisch & Rachel Danziger van Embden) at Palais im Großen Garten and in the evening, Dr. Harald Lesch and Merlin Ensemble Wien: “The Four Seasons in Climate Change” with music by Antonio Vivaldi at Kulturpalast.
