Jan Vogler: Concerts with Amanda Gorman and at the Dresdner Musikfestspielen (February 2024)
After cellist and director of the Dresdner Musikfestspiele Jan Vogler has devoted himself very much to contemporary composers in recent years (including Three Continents by Nico Muhly, Sven Helbig, Zhou Long and the world premiere of Sean Sheperd’s On a clear day in New York), he is embarking on a new musical journey: on February 17th with a special concert format with inaugural-poet Amanda Gorman. Together they will perform a concert evening with Bach’s cello suites and spoken word at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
In May, Jan Vogler will perform a program with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin under the direction of Anna Rakitina with works by Miklós Rózsa, an important Hungarian-American film composer. On June 4, Jan Vogler will play Anna Clyne’s cello concerto Dance with the London Philharmonia Orchestra and Santtu-Matias Rouvali. Both concerts belong to this year’s program of the Dresdner Musikfestspiele.
