Ballet in Leipzig and Antwerp with dances of works by Galina Ustvolskaya

Hochgeladene Datei

The new ballet “Solitude” by Mario Schröder will premiere at the Leipzig Ballet on 16 October 2020. It will be performed by members of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra conducted by Ulf Schirmer. The musical basis is Galina Ustvolskaya’s Symphony No. 5 “Amen”.  

Symphony No. 5 “Amen” (1989/90) is Ustvolskaya’s last composition and has an almost sober and clear structure, in the course of which homophonic passages of the violin, oboe, trumpet, tuba and percussion accompany a solo part reciting the “Our Father”. 

In addition to this new choreography from Leipzig based on a work by Galina Ustvolskaya, a video of a choreography by Sammy Van Den Heuvel of the Ballet Vlaanderen Antwerp has been made available on the Internet. This choreography's impressive dance scene is accompanied by the 5th movement of Galina Ustvolskaya's "Great Duet" for violoncello and piano.
