World premiere! Johannes Wildner presents Friedemann Katt’s “De rerum natura” – May 28th

To celebrate a hundred years of Lions Club International, the Lions Club Ried is causing a stir with a noteworthy world premiere: “De Rerum Natura – Of the Nature of Things”, Franz Xaver Frenzel’s broadest work so far, and his most comprehensive. The composer describes the work as “philosophical – romantic – modern; yet, just like a baroque-era painted ceiling, entertaining.” The Festival-Sinfonietta Orchestra Linz, with Johannes Wildner conducting, will present this world premiere on May 28th at Ried im Innkreis.
