Yes, believe it or not, it exists. Daniel Galindo from Lima in Peru, who has been working with pics4peace since he has been here in Würzburg, proves it. He has transposed Mozart's music in a Latin American way and has written pieces especially for the original instruments of this music, namely guitar, his instrument, percussion and flute. Why this? He is convinced that music connects people. And he is not alone in this. He was even able to win over other professionals: Hazuki Kono, a flutist from Tokyo, Japan, who - like Daniel - is currently completing her Master of Performance at the University of Music in Würzburg; Michael Kock, percussionist and community musician, is traveling from Leipzig especially to join in.
And you have the chance to experience this extraordinary premiere in a great ambience and at the same time even more. It's all about sharing and meeting new people. How, where, when?
- Thursday, July 07, at 6:00 pm.
- Bistro Belvedere in Würzburg at Hubland,
- Admission is free! (Because many are helping and supporting! Thank you!!!).
Feel free to bring a blanket. If the weather is good, you can sit down on the lawn of the former runway or on a little wall. Of course, there will be chairs available. Drinks and snacks will be provided by the Belvedere's inclusive crew. In case of bad weather we will be in the bistro.
But now back to the music: Why the theme "Mozart"? What does it have to do with today?
In any case, more than you might think at first glance: Apart from the fact that Würzburg has the second oldest Mozart festival in Europe, Mozart lived in a time of upheaval: in the end, there was a revolution. Rigid structures were broken up, with all their distortions. Today, we also feel similarly strongly diverse upheavals. Many people have fears. In addition, there is the loneliness, which has become even more intense as a result of Corona. All of this is a real burden.
"That makes it all the more important not to lose trust, to reach out to one another and to take courage again and again. Music can contribute to this.",
our mayor and patron Christian Schuchardt agrees.
So we set a positive counterpoint. Through music, Daniel, Hazuki and Michael conjure up an atmosphere of joy, openness and togetherness, in which people who are new to Würzburg and those who have lived here for a while can exchange ideas about what moves them, get to know each other, give each other tips or perhaps even help each other.
Imagine Mozart with a hip swing! Will be really coooool! We have to see each other! :)
