        »Meaning everywhere«

        One of the old masters closest to the heart of the Staatskapelle’s Composer-in-Residence, Georg Friedrich Haas, is Franz Schubert, whose music repeatedly ventured into new expressive realms. So it is only logical that Susanna Mälkki, in her debut with the Staatskapelle, contrasts the world premiere of Haas’s new orchestral work, written especially for the orchestra’s anniversary, with Schubert’s longest and most ambitious symphony. When, eleven years after Schubert’s death, the work was given its first concert performance in Leipzig, Robert Schumann was rhapsodic: »Life in every fibre, colouring down to the finest gradation, meaning everywhere.«
