"Bright spots - time for new perspectives"

More event data

The concert

With their program "Lichtblicke" the Junge Bläserphilharmonie NRW ventures to something unprecedented. The orchestra brings three world premieres to the concert hall. All commissioned works of renowned composers, which could not be more different and yet have one thing in common: a unique, intercultural perspective. They look at Central Europe, the Turkish-Arab area and the Jewish music tradition.

The second half focuses on James Barnes Third Symphony. A poignant work full of power and energy, from which the composer drew new hope after a heavy stroke of fate. The furious finale Barnes dedicates to his son Billy, who only three days after the completion of the symphony came to the world – a bright spot in the life of the composer.

Enjoy music with new perspectives for the new year, conducted and moderated by Timor Chadik and with the soloist Robert Beck, clarinet.

Here is the current program draft (changes possible):

  • Philip Sparke: A Jubilee Overture
  • Thiemo Kraas: premiere
  • Betin G√ľnes: premiere
  • Tobias Sch√ľtte: premiere
  • James Barnes: Sinfonie Nr. 3 op. 89 "Die Tragische"

The Junge Bläserphilharmonie NRW

The "Junge Bläserphilharmonie NRW" was founded in 1985 as "LandesJugendBlasOrchester", in order to work with young gifted musicians from 14 to 24 years from all over NRW to create original and arranged works for symphonic wind orchestras of all epochs and to perform them in a professional setting.

The members of the orchestra are about 65 young musicians between 14 and 24 years of age; many of them are first prizewinners at the national competition for youth music. All participants will be admitted only after completing the audition or after taking part in a trial phase. Twice a year the members of the Junge Bläserphilharmonie NRW meet for the rehearsals that take place with concerts in NRW, Germany and at international events.

Concert tours have already taken the orchestra to Belgium, Hungary, Italy, Russia, Belarus , Denmark, France, Switzerland, the USA, China and Singapore, and most recently to Spain in 2017. In 1999 the Junge Bläserphilharmonie NRW was the only German orchestra to perform in the musical framework of the 9th International WASBE Conference in San Luis Obispo, California. A live recording of this concert, released on CD, testifies to the great sound culture of the formation. In 2005, an invitation to the 12th WASBE Conference in Singapore followed, which was documented with a CD recording. In July 2013 the JBP NRW was invited to the World Music Contest in Kerkrade, the most important international competition for symphonic wind orchestras. There the orchestra won the first place in the Festival Division and a listed work of the JBP was published on the official CD of the competition.

The 30th anniversary of the Junge Bläserphilharmonie NRW was celebrated together with other youth ensembles from NRW at a festive weekend in September 2015 in Cologne, to which international guests and representatives of all wind orchestras from all over Germany could be welcomed. In addition to Pierre Kuijpers and Harry Vorselen, Timor Chadik and Thomas Clamor were the guest directors of the Junge Bläserphilharmonie NRW.

From the winter work phase 2017/2018 Timor Chadik is the permanent conductor of the orchestra.
