Collegium Musicum Concert—”Panta Rhei–Alles Fliesst”
It must have been the wonderful view over the Vltava river from his favorite place Třebsín that inspired the father of Czech music, Bedřich Smetana, to capture the rippling, flowing, and streaming of the river in such wonderfully sweet tones! Powerful emotions also weighed heavily in the music of Smetana’s famous compatriot: Antonín Dvořák's "Te Deum" was written to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America. At the premiere in October 1892, 250 choristers sang with a force that made Carnegie Hall tremble. In the Stadtcasino, not only will the Basler Münsterkantorei (Basel Minster Choir) impress, but when Maya Boog and Ruben Drole sing, you can look forward to an unforgettable evening. With Robert Schumann's Symphony No. 3, op. 97, “Die Rheinische,” the program includes a symphonic classic that surprises again and again with its freshness.
Tickets are CHF 49-84 for adults and CHF 15 for students.
