Sommerliche Musiktage Hitzacker – Chamber Orchestra Concert

The Sommerliche Musiktage Hitzacker comes to the close of its birthday celebration, and this concert also marks the close of the Solistensensemble Kaleidoskop’s three-year residency in Hitzacker.

The program includes works from the Baroque to the Avantgarde. At the same time, with the first movement of Bach’s Concerto for 2 violins, we bid a fond farewell to Carolin Widmann and extend a hearty welcome to Oliver Wille, her successor as artistic director of the Hitzacker Summer Music Festival.
