Dear  audience

how can you plan for the unknown?

 How can we present a season preview when conditions are anything but clear due to the pandemic? 

AGAIN ONWARDS – this has a bit of defiance and optimism: it must, indeed it will continue again. But AGAIN ONWARDS is also part of the program for the 20/21 season: return and repetition on one hand and expansiveness, pursuit and continuation on the other run like a thread through our program.

In the Freiburg subscription concerts, “the old” appears again in the form of a remix, we hear from far-away Hong Kong, a young composer once again focuses on the relationship between music and text, and an Icelandic saga is recounted from the perspective of #MeToo.

Our international concert activities have resumed. As far as international travel regulations allow, concert tours to Denmark, Spain, Luxembourg, Japan and Turkey are planned. Our newsletter, to which you are welcome to subscribe, will inform you about possible changes and activities.

AGAIN ONWARDS it goes also with our show. Enjoy browsing through our new website. 

We hope you continue to remain curious about our projects and look forward to seeing you again in person. Until then, stay healthy!
