In connection with the festival’s focus on Pierre Boulez, master cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras is joined by his students of the Musikhochschule Freiburg to give a lecture recital on Boulez’ Messagesquisse for solo cello and six cellists. In a special seating arrangement the musicians as well as the audience are positioned on the stage of the Stadsschouwburg. After an initial run-through of the piece, Queyras will bit by bit introduce the audience to Boulez’ rich universe of sounds. Rounding off with a second full performance of the piece, the audience will now experience the music in a completely new way.
