Jan Müller-Wieland Composes for Baroque Instruments for the First Time

The “Five Pieces about Jesus” for soprano and five baroque instruments (four players) by Jan Müller-Wieland will be given their world premiere four days before Christmas Eve, on 20 December 2016 at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich. Soloists will be Julia Moorman (soprano), Birgit Stolzenburg de Biasio (salterio, dulcimer), Saskia Fikentscher (baroque oboe), Kristin von der Goltz (baroque violoncello) and Christine Schornsheim (harpsichord/small organ).

Müller-Wieland wrote this work for the pre-Christmas concert “Advent in Different Centuries” of the Institute for Historical Performance Practice of the University of Music in Munich. Birgit Müller-Wieland will recite poems of her own between the pieces. In his work, the composer is concerned with connotations of the importance of Jesus and Christmas in everyday life. Müller-Wieland has written for baroque instruments for the very first time in this work.
