Concert Cantiamo Piccolo: "Danse macabré

In the autumnal season of November, the Kassel Chamber Choir of the University "Cantiamo Piccolo" invites you to two very special concert experiences under the motto "Danse macabré":

On the occasion of the 175th anniversary of Kassel's main cemetery, works by Hugo Distler will be performed on Wednesday, Nov. 7. The guest of honor for the evening will be Distler's nephew - violinist and singer-songwriter, Thomas Kagermann.

In impressive improvisations and with electronic timbres, themes and fragments of Distler's music will be transformed into a new tonal language of the present and the moment.

The central work of the concert evening is Distler's "Totentanz" for violin, speaker and choir. For a performance of the "Totentanz" on the occasion of the Kassel Music Days in 1934, Distler additionally composed short variations of the song "Es ist ein Schnitter" for solo flute, which Kagermann will transform into his own variations for violin.

The performance of the "Dance of Death" on 07.11. will be further enriched by the actor Alexander Pluquett, who will bring the old texts of the Lübeck Dance of Death from the 15th century to life in a new way.

After the concert, there will be an opportunity to talk together over drinks and nibbles.

Free admission, donations requested.
