On September 5, Kent Nagano conducts the premiere of “molto agitato” in Hamburg.
Concert, song and music theatre provide the pieces of the evening: “Nouvelles Aventures” by György Ligeti, “Vier Gesänge” op. 43 by Johannes Brahms, Händel’s “Aci”, “Galatea e Polifemo” and “Die sieben Todsünden” by Kurt Weill. Included are texts by Quentin Tarantino on sex and violence from “Reservoir Dogs”. Five soloists and a chamber orchestra are recapturing the Staatsoper stage after a forced break of almost six months. How we have experienced and still experience this time, how it throws us off balance and how it opens new spaces – that is what “molto agitato” stands for.
