China-Première! Johannes Wildner conducting Rouse’s “Alberich” and Mahler in Beijing – February 8th

It will be a very special evening: On the 8th of February, for the first time ever, Christopher Rouse’s “Der gerettete Alberich” will be performed in China. The work by the most-performed composer of the latter half of the twentieth century describes the fate of the dwarf Alberich after the Twilight of the Gods. The China Philharmonic Orchestra, directed by Johannes Wildner, will also perform Mahler’s 1st symphony...


The Los-Angeles-Times wrote about “Der gerettete Alberich”: “It helps to know that Rouse has a knack for outlandish gestures, a deep and abiding love of rock’n’roll, a competitive obsession with getting orchestras to play louder than they ever have in the past, and a sense of humor. Alberich […] is a riot, in more ways than one.“ Rouse’s works are also performed by conductors such as Leonard Slatkin, Christoph Eschenbach, and Leif Segerstam.
