World Premiere of Marius Felix Lange’s Orchestral Work “norðr” in Berlin

The “Young Ensemble Berlin – Symphony Orchestra” conducted by Michael Riedel will perform the world premiere of the commissioned composition "norðr" by Marius Felix Lange at the Berlin Philharmonie on 29 January 2012. Also on the programme will be Leonore Overture No. 3 of Beethoven and Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony.

“The work ‘norðr’ (Old Norse for 'north' or northward') was inspired by the idea of a journey, born of an urge to occupy, to a mythical-symbolic North. Its three movements (funding – The Discovery, dans – Dance, norðr –North) unfold under the narrative surface of a musical development from the figurative to the abstract.”

Marius Felix Lange, born in 1968, first studied the violin and then composition with Prof. Ulrich Leyendecker in Mannheim, then film music and sound design at the Ludwigsburg Film Academy. With his opera “The Opera Ship” (libretto by Elke Heidenreich) he won first prize at the 1st International Composition Competition in Cologne in 2005. After his latest opera “Snow White” (UA Cologne Opera April 2011, new production in French planned for December 2012 at the Opéra national du Rhin in Strasburg), he is now writing the large-scale family opera “The Ghost of Canterville,” to be premiered in November 2013 at the Zurich Opera.
