A labyrinth is one design element in the art of horticulture in which the visitor's sense of direction is deliberately and pleasurably confused, with branching paths making you more and more disorientated. Such puzzles have always exerted a fascination – and not only in the field of landscape architecture. In the history of music, too, we find compositions that play games with shifting perspectives and false vanishing points.
In the third and final concert of the series "A Musical Expedition", the String Quartet of Leipzig University of Music and Drama guides us through harmonic and melodic labyrinths devised by Johann Sebastian Bach, Joseph Haydn, Ludwig van Beethoven and Felix Mendelssohn. The listener can experience the polyphonic interweaving of works such as Bach's Art of the Fugue and the Great Fugue (Op. 133) by Beethoven.
This bamboozling of the senses can be enjoyed before the concert during a joint tour of the labyrinth in the Wörlitz Garden Realm.
In cooperation with the
HMT "Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy", Leipzig and dem Stadtmuseum Halle (Saale).
