Notes and Editorial Reviews

"There is music which one cannot hear enough. Nikolaus Brass writes music of this kind." The music journalist Reinhard Schulz, who died in 2009 and was one of the most sensitive observers of contemporary music, encountered few composers with the enthusiasm and empathy that he showed for Nikolaus Brass. "It is certainly not possible to establish, by decree, which composers are indispensible for a certain period. At the same time, one believes to directly sense, of certain composers, that they are essential. Nikolaus Brass, born in Lindau on Lake Constance in 1949, is such a composer." The Munich Chamber Orchestra (Munchener Kammerorchester/MKO). has presented over 60 world premieres, since former Artistic Director Read more Christoph Poppen established its unmistakably dynamic profile in the '90s. Since the 2006/2007 season, Alexander Liebreich has been the principal conductor and artistic director of the MKO. Since 2011 he has been the artistic director of the Tongyeong International Music Festival (TIMF) in South Korea. Since the beginning of the 2012/2013 season, Liebreich has been artistic director and principle conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra of the Polish Broadcasting Company (NOSPR) with headquarters in Katowice, and is thus the first German principal conductor in Poland since 1945.
