Richard Wagner: Tristan und Isolde, Prelude WWV 90 (1857)
Rebecca Saunders: Still – choreographic Version (2011/16) for Violin, Orchestra and Dancers
Alban Berg: Lulu-Suite. Symphonic Pieces from the Opera Lulu for coloratura Soprano and Orchestra (1934)

UN/RUHE is the new cross-genre project, in which the Young German Philharmonic with violinist Carolin Widmann and dancers from Sasha Waltz & Guests in musical and performative counterpoints arrange: The core of this choreographic concert is the Violin Concerto Still by Rebecca Saunders, framed by Richard Wagner’s Prelude to Tristan and Isolde and the Lulu Suite by Alban Berg.

Rebecca Sounders Violin Concerto, premiered in 2014 by Carolin Widmann, has musically expanded for this project, thus creating the basis for the congenial choreographic implementation.
