Weimar: World Premiere of Ferran Cruixent’s Orchestral Work “Cyborg”

The term Cyborg refers to a mixed-being out of living organism and machine. It usually describes people whose bodies are permanently completed by artificial components.

The young Catalonian composer Ferran Cruixent has dedicated his latest work “Cyborg” for orchestra to these beings. The world premiere will take place on 2 May 2010 in the European Cultural City of Weimar. The work will be performed by the Staatskapelle Weimar under the direction of Christoph Poppen. Cruixent already thrilled the Weimar public in December 2008 with his percussion concerto “Focs d’artifici.”

Alongside Cruixent, the evening is dedicated to the two composers celebrating their 200th birthdays, Chopin und Schumann, born in 1810 just a few weeks apart in Zelazowa Wola, Poland and in Zwickau, Germany.
