NATURE vs. INDUSTRY


  • Ochsenhausen, Germany (map)

For its summer residency, the Alma Mahler Kammerorchester was working on a new program entitled "Nature vs. Industry" featuring works by Hindemith, Wagner, Connesson and Debussy. This program aimed to deal with the loss of innocence and the conflicting nature of these two realms. We wanted the performance to go beyond just the musical experience and bring a reflection on what is both a sociological and philosophical issue.

We collaborated again with J.Blanch productions and recorded brand new videos. Check them out on our YouTube channel!

Leo McFall again conducted our big summer project, taking place in Ochsenhausen, Germany. This town is also known as the "Baroque Kingdom of Heaven" (Himmelreich des Barock), for it was in the Baroque era, that music and sciences proliferated here. Today, it is home to the Landesakademie Ochsenhausen, which regularly hosts various chamber music groups – not unlike ourselves – and welcomes audiences for numerous concerts throughout the whole year.
