Opening of the big concert series in Halle by GMD Josep Caballé-DomenechAt the start of the big concert series of Staatskapelle Halle this season - themed “War and Peace” - on 19 and 20 October 2014, GMD Josep Caballé-Domenech will conduct Prokofiev’s 5th Symphony. This symphony, composed in 1944, is often called “patriotic-heroic war symphony”. The prayer “Kol Nidre”, sung at the beginning of the celebrations of Jom Kippur, the Jewish “reconciliation day” stands in strong contrast to this 5th Symphony. Max Bruch’s song for violoncello and orchestra “Kol Nidre” will be played at the beginning of the concerts, whose programs is completed by Tchaikowsky’s “Variations on a Rokoko-theme” with soloist Jan Vogler.
