Chor Ad Libitum
Heinz Ferlesch – musical direction
Being one of the most significant ensembles of its genre on the Austrian music scene, the choir Ad Libitum presents musical compositions from the baroque period to the present time under the musical direction of Heinz Ferlesch. They perform pieces by Heinrich Schütz, Johannes Brahms, Gustav Mahler, Pablo Casals, Josep Vila i Casañas and many more. – The popular actress Katharina Stemberger reads especially selected texts. The finely compiled literary-musical-programme discovers human suffering and covers a wide range from the Passion of Christ to the ordeal of the ones suffering under the impacts of war and persecution. Underpinning all this is the desire for peace.
