Pre-concert: 6:15 p.m. Maya Boog, soprano Ruben Drole, baritone Basler Münsterkantorei Georg Köhler, guest conductor Bedřich Smetana Die Moldau Antonín Dvořák Te Deum, op.103 Robert Schumann Symphony No. 3, op. 97 ("The Rhenish") It must have been the magnificent view over the Vltava River at his favorite place, Třebsín, which inspired Bedřich Smetana, the father of Czech music, to capture the river's rippling, flowing and streaming in such gloriously sweet tones! Powerful emotions also surged in the music of Smetana's famous compatriot: Antonín Dvořák's "Te Deum" was written for the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America. 250 choristers sang with a force that made Carnegie Hall tremble at the premiere in October 1892. In the Stadtcasino, the Basler Münsterkantorei will impress us. And when Maya Boog and Ruben Drole sing, we can again look forward to a great evening - the two star singers are well remembered from their performance in 2021. Schumann's "Rhenish" is a symphonic classic that never ceases to surprise with its freshness.
