About the programme

"This programme features the music of composers who had to leave their homeland. Fleeing one’s land and the search for a new home have always been part of our human history and are still in our time a bitter reality for entire populations.

Where is home? Where we are born, or where we die? Is exile pain and isolation or also a source of inspiration? What remains for composers, for us musicians, for us human beings, is the exile into art, into the ineffable of music, which defies any conceptualization. You will hear sounds in this concert that may know this. Let's listen to what they tell us."

Patricia Kopatchinskaja and Thomas Kaufmann
