Staged Concert

Music by: Johann Sebastian Bach, Salvatore Sciarrino, Richard Wagner, Franz Schubert, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Leonard Bernstein, John Cage und Evan Gardner

Text from: Thomas Manns Doktor Faustus

Just as God and the Devil argue incessantly over Faust’s soul, they also quarrel for an eternity over music: is it an audible image of divine order, or a chaotic work of devilish creation? This staged chamber concert explores the Faust legend both musically and theatrically as a parable for the tension between tradition and innovation in the development of the modern classical concert.
