Another America

USA: on the one hand – Disney, Gershwin, Rodgers, Sinatra, on the other hand – Salinger, Wilder, Kerouac, Ives. We need both of these Americas, however the other ones are not enough. So this time the Muenster Hall wil feature music created by the mathematician and survivor Elliott Carter (1908-2012), whale rights defender George Crumb, modern opera giant Jake Heggie, as well as Brazilian classic Villa-Lobos.
