Prof. Reinhard Öhlberger



Premiere on Tour

How often does an orchestra go on tour with a world premiere as part of the scheduled program? This is exactly what happened when the Vienna Philharmonic under Daniel Harding prepared the newly composed work by Olga Neuwirth, "Masaot/Clocks without Hands". This 25-minute composition is dedicated to our orchestra and was commissioned by several institutions including the Vienna Konzerthaus Society, the Vienna Festival, "KölnMusik" and Carnegie Hall in New York. The remainder of the concert program was made up of Gustav Mahler's "Das Lied von der Erde" with Klaus Florian Vogt (tenor) and Matthias Goerne (baritone).

After five intensive rehearsals in the Vienna Konzerthaus, the first concert was performed in the Kölner Philharmonie on May 7, 2015. This was part of the "Eight Bridges / Music for Cologne" festival, which was presented this year under the broad theme of "Spannungsfeld zwischen Musik und Politik (Interplay between Music and Politics)".

The following day the program was repeated in the Philharmonie in Luxemburg. Two additional performances were given on May 9 and 10 as concerts for the Vienna Festival in the Vienna Konzerthaus.
