The “BrandenburgProjekt” – Antje Weithaas on tour with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra

The Swedish Chamber Orchestra, founded in 1995, was recently noted for a one-of-a-kind project: Six composers write a “partner work” for each of the Brandenburg concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach. The first results penned by the Californian Grammy-laureate Steven Mackey and the American allround genius Uri Caine are ready and can be listened to in the direct juxtaposition of old and new. Together with the Swedish experient master of Trumpet, Håkan Hardenberger, Uri Caine, the rogue at the piano, and violinist Antje Weithaas, the orchestra is on tour with this fascinating programme in Budapest, Potsdam, and Cologne, to name just a few cities.
