Klasse Klassik – Composition Commission issued to Konstantia Gourzi
Europäische Wochen Passau
Since 2003 promoting school ensembles has become a key fixture in the pedagogical work of the Munich Radio Orchestra. Under the heading "Klasse Klassik" (Class Classic) the best Bavarian school orchestras and choirs are given the opportunity to play music alongside professionals in the orchestra. In order to emphasize the Bavaria-wide focus of the project even more strongly, since the 2009/2010 season targeted regional focuses have been chosen. School orchestras particularly from the region around Passau will be invited to "Klasse Klassik" 2010 – whose closing concert will be held as part of the Europäische Wochen Passau festival under the baton of Ulf Schirmer. Thanks to the support of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation it was also possible to issue a composition commission to Greek composer and conductor Konstantia Gourzi.
