As part of NEC's Music: Truth to Power festival, David Loebel, Associate Director of Orchestras, conducts orchestral suites from two operas - Hindemith's Mathis der Maler and Weill's The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny - plus Berg's Violin Concerto, with a student soloist to be announced after concerto competition.
The Hindemith work pits the protagonist artist against a repressive political regime, while the Weill was an anti-capitalist, anti-opera. The Berg distilled the political tumult of 1930s Europe.
