Faithful Music Festival

Fidelity and betrayal of musical interpretation

Scene photo Music Festival Faithful, Band

The pious Helene

Live radio play with text and pictures by Wilhelm Busch and music by Bernd Alois Zimmermann (1918-1970) and live improvisations by Ensemble Megaphon.

Wilhelms Busch's well-known, delightfully frivolous verse work in a completely different way: the Ensemble Megaphon playfully and humorously comments on the text. In live interaction, music and large image projection comics influence each other. The actress Vroni Kiefer burns off a dazzling firework of language between recitation, reading and acted scenes.


with Séverine Ballon (violoncello), Members of the Osnabrück Project Choir
and the commissioned composition RaumWandel from Willem Schulz
Dominican Church Art Gallery
The concert will bring contemporary music into a multifaceted relationship with the art and architecture of the Kunsthalle Dominkanerkirche, whose various spaces will be brought to life in an audio-visual choreography. The programme includes works by Rebecca Saunders, Trevor Baca, Thierry Blondeau, Ramon Lazkano and Willem Schulz.


with Michaelis Consort - Baroque Ensemble for Artistic Research &
The Faithful Jazz Workshop Band at Luther House

Right into the heart of improvisation and interpretation, this concert takes them to the same graphic score by Anestis Logothetis performed successively by a baroque ensemble and a jazz combo. Baroque and jazz works will also be heard.
