'Sound Atlas' is not only our season motto, but also the title of one of the latest orchestral works by our 'Composer in Residence' Anders Hillborg. His music stands for immersion in spherical sound worlds. After the 2019 premiere in London, one critic enthusiastically wrote: "If Stanley Kubrick came back to remake 2001 and needed a soundtrack, Hillborg would be his man."

With Debussy's La Mer, a musical work of art of seductive soundscapes awaits you after the interval. Debussy composed La Mer neither on the Atlantic nor on the Mediterranean, but in Burgundy.

Tschaikowski wrote his violin concerto with a view of the blossoming trees on Lake Geneva. He could not have guessed that after the premiere in Vienna, the music critic Eduard Hanslick would ask the malicious question, "Aren't there pieces of music that you can hear stink?
