20 Years Peaceful Revolution – Leipzig commemorates the 9th of October 1989

Gewandhausorchester Leipzig
Conductor: Kurt Masur

Ludwig van Beethoven – “Egmont” Overture, Op. 84

Watch the full concert here:

On 9 October 1989, 70,000 people staged a non-violent demonstration calling for more freedom and democracy in the GDR. Thanks to the claim “Peaceful Revolution”, initiated by Kurt Masur as one of six prominent citizens of Leipzig, everything proceeded peacefully. That evening, the Gewandhausorchester played under his baton Brahms’ Second Symphony at the St. Nicolas Church. The following regular “Monday Demonstrations”, which came to be described as the “Peaceful Revolution”, became a major milestone on the way to open the Berlin Wall one month later on November the 9th in 1989 and paving the foundations for the reunification of the two German states.

Exactly 20 years later, the Gewandhausorchester and Kurt Masur commemorate the beginning of the German reunification by presenting the same symphony at the same location.

Live recording at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, New York City, May 24, 2012.

First Prize winners of the 7th Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in 2011, top prizewinners and Listeners’ Choice Award recipients in the 2011 Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition, and winners of the Alice Coleman Grand Prize at the 60th annual Coleman Chamber Ensemble Competition in 2006, the internationally acclaimed Attacca Quartet has become one of America’s premier young performing ensembles. The Attacca Quartet is comprised of violinists Amy Schroeder and Keiko Tokunaga, violist Luke Fleming and cellist Andrew Yee, and was formed at the Juilliard School in 2003. Praised by Strad for possessing “maturity beyond its members’ years,” they made their professional debut in 2007 as part of the Artists International Winners Series in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall.

The Attacca Quartet performed John Adams’ recently composed String Quartet (2008) in Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in December 2009; having worked closely on the quartet with Mr. Adams, he has enthusiastically supported their performances of it. They have recently completed a recording project of the complete works for string quartet by John Adams, which will be released on Azica Records in March 2013. The 2010-2011 concert season marked the beginning of “The 68,” an ambitious project in which they will perform all sixty-eight Haydn string quartets on a special series they have created in New York City. They have been honored with both the Arthur Foote Award from the Harvard Musical Association and the Lotos Prize in the Arts from the Stecher and Horowitz Foundation.
