Premiere of Thomas Daniel Schlee’s Organ Concerto “Horai”
The classical characterisation of the hours of the day, the “Horai”, are the inspiration for the twelve concise movements of Thomas Daniel Schlee’s concerto for organ and chamber orchestra, composed with support from the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation. The premiere of Horai. Konzertante Musik für Orgel und Kammerorchester op. 79, a commission from Camerata Salzburg, takes place on 7 March 2014 in Salzburg. A second performance is planned for 9 March. The organ soloist in the Mozarteum is Christian Schmitt, and Philippe Herreweghe conducts Camerata Salzburg.
