After 1,500 km on the road, visiting three cities and playing to over 8,000 people, the Baltic Sea Philharmonic with the support of the Open Sea Foundation has completed an exhilarating first half of its ‘Waterworks’ tour. The musicians now have a three-month break until the second half of ‘Waterworks’. As we take a breath, we can look back on an amazing trio of concerts, in Hattingen, Germany, and in Copenhagen and Aarhus, Denmark. Kristjan Järvi and the Baltic Sea Philharmonic earned standing ovations for their performances of ‘Water Music’ and Philip Glass. Violinist Mikhail Simonyan seduced audiences with his account of Glass’s Violin Concerto No. 2. And our creative team of lighting, sound, projection and fashion designers ensured that the concerts had a stunning visual impact.
We can’t wait to bring ‘Waterworks’ back to Germany later in the summer: the concerts will be held from the 25th till the 29th of August with the final performance of the tour at the famous Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.back
