One theme, one weekend, many events: The patent of a certain Adolphe Sax from 1846 provides an opportunity for an all-round view this summer. The SIGNUM saxophone quartet as prizewinner in residence and its guests present the saxophone as an instrument with many faces.
"Eismeer, Konzert für Saxofonquartett, Vibraphon und Streicher" is the name of the piece of music that is the focus of the large orchestral concert on Saturday evening. It is a very special work: Christian Jost, one of the leading composers of our time, has written it for the SIGNUMs to mark the 250th anniversary of Caspar David Friedrich.
The work is entitled "Sea of Ice" after a painting by Friedrich from 1824. The painting on which it is based 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. Jost works this temporal dimension into his three-movement piece, which was premiered the evening before in Greifswald and will receive its second performance in Ulrichshusen under the direction of the composer and with the participation of Daniel Hope and the Zurich Chamber Orchestra.

JOST "Eismeer": Commissioned by the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival and the University and Hanseatic City of Greifswald on the occasion of the Caspar David Friedrich Jubilee 2024

The world premiere of "Eismeer" will take place on 26.07. in Greifswald.
