Focus on Philippe Herreweghe
Searching and shaping - historically informed performance as a work in progress
Philippe Herreweghe says that silence is a rare commodity in his life. He is a tireless investigator, dedicated to the unconditional and in-depth exploration of music’s original sound. Herreweghe is one of the central figures of historically informed performance – having researched music from the 18th century backwards and also delving into the later epochs, up to classical modernity. For the first time, the Alte Oper places a focus on an important representative of historically informed performance, introducing the Flemish sound scientist and artist in a three-part portrait.
