World premiere of the composition "Eismeer" by Christian Jost

250 years of Caspar David Friedrich - the whole country celebrates in summer 2024! The festival program also includes a world premiere. One of the most renowned composers of our time, Christian Jost, has been commissioned by the Festspiele MV and the University and Hanseatic City of Greifswald to create a musical memorial to the most important painter of the Romantic period and to write his new piece of music for this year's prizewinner in residence, the SIGNUM saxophone quartet.
Based on a painting by Friedrich from 1824, the work is entitled "Eismeer" (Sea of Ice). The underlying picture is not one of the most famous by the painter from Greifswald, perhaps wrongly so. Jost found in it, which tells of the tragedy of man in a hostile environment, the touching starting point for his composition: viewers associate both a dramatic prehistory and a line into the present. The composer has incorporated this temporal dimension into his three-movement piece.
Christian Jost himself will conduct the world premiere. The rest of the ensemble is also top-class: the Zurich Chamber Orchestra with its music director, star violinist Daniel Hope, Lukas Böhm on vibraphone and the SIGNUM saxophone quartet. The composition will also be performed a second time this summer: on July 27, 2024 at the Festspielscheune Ulrichshusen.
