What is this canon, who establishes it - and what awaits us when we dissolve it? This is the question the junge norddeutsche philharmonie is asking itself this year. And not only to themselves! They also want to know from Cymin Samawatie and Ketan Bhatti from the Trickster Orchestra whether and how conservative musical practice can be broken open to approach the realities of life in our modern post-migrant society.
With "beyondthecanon," the Trickster Orchestra and the jnp want to enter into conversation with different people, develop concert programs, find answers in order to be able to ask new questions again. In the summer of 2022, both orchestras will perform a new reading of Gustav Mahler's unfinished 10th Symphony together at the Detect Classic Festival. We are excited to hear transtraditional music between Japanese koto and violin, sheng and clarinet - and immensely proud that the Trickster Orchestra, which just won the German jazz award "Great Ensemble of the Year," will be our guest at the Detect.
