Junge Deutsche Philharmonie


Junge Deutsche Philharmonie

Film Revue in the tradition of the great colorful cinema evenings of the Weimar Republic – with newly arranged Brecht settings, silent film classics and live film music, pantomime and performance.

To dare to build bridges to other arts, to conquer unconventional venues and to pave unexpected ways for music to reach new ears: The Zukunftsorchester has been realizing these goals since 2008 as part of its biennial format FREISPIEL. This season, under the motto GOLDRAUSCH, the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie presents a three-part revue in the tradition of the great colorful cinema evenings of the Weimar Republic. With newly arranged Brecht settings, the silent film classic Der Schatz including live film music, pantomime and performance, the musicians and artists span the arc from the golden 1920s to the present and make it clear that the themes of consumption, avarice and greed were as relevant then as they are now.
