Dies irae

The Dies irae - the beginning of a medieval hymn about the Last Judgement - still characterises the history of music today. On the second evening of her portrait series, Patricia Kopatchinskaja tackles the problems of our time, first and foremost global warming. With the COLLOREDO ensemble and the Company of Music, she crosses centuries and regions in this cleverly staged concert in order to convey her concern musically: In addition to Galina Ustvolskaya's incomparably intense »Dies irae«, the programme includes works by John Dowland, Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber and the portrait artist herself. »When I think of the environment today, I think of the end of the world«, says the grandiose violinist. The only question is: »How much time do we have left?«
