Performance & Artists

When a renowned and internationally experienced orchestra such as the Wuerttemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn gives the stage to a young virtuoso like Linus Roth, a classical atmosphere is created where the suspense between the audience and artists reaches a boiling point and decisively influences the style of playing. Professor Jörg Faerber staged a concert with precisely all these factors, in which the orchestra offers probably the best fundament for a young virtuoso with its perfect playing. Faerber impressively sets the intensity of the performance in tantalising contrast to the soloists' sheer feeling for Mozart.

The Wuerttemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn (Württembergisches Kammerorchester Heilbronn) has been together since 1960. Performances range from Baroque works, classical (also in symphonic cast), string compositions of the Romanesque period and early modernity, as well as avant-garde works. The orchestra plays at all relevant concert halls around the globe on large tours or at individual concerts with soloists such as Anne-Sophie Mutter, Maurice André, Alfred Brendel, James Galway, Viktoria Mullova, Frank Peter Zimmermann, Thomas Quasthoff, Martha Argerich and Sharon Kam. In addition, the orchestra places special emphasis on co-operation with fresh young soloists.

Jörg Faerber, Head Conductor of the Wuerttemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn, was born in Stuttgart where he later received his degree in conducting at the state conservatory (Staatliche Hochschule für Musik). After an eight-year career as a theatre bandmaster and composer for opera and movie, he founded the Wuerttemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn in 1961, which, under his direction, grew to become one of Europe's leading chamber orchestras. He is regarded as one of the most renowned conductors of his time. In 1984 Jörg Faerber was awarded the German Federal Cross of Merit, and, in 1986, the academic title of Professor.

Born in 1977 in Ravensburg, Linus Roth was accepted to Prof. Nicolas Chumachenco's class at the Freiburg Conservatory at the age of 12. He continued with his studies in 1993 under the wing of Zakhar Bron at the Luebeck conservatory, where he passed his artistic final exams in 1998/99. Roth is the recipient of numerous national and international violin competition awards such as the "Wieniawski-Lipinski Competition" held in Lublin, and the "International Violin Competition Novosibirsk" where he received an honourable award for the best Bach interpretation. In 2006 Linus Roth received the "Echo Classik" of the German Phonoacademy as "Best Newcomer". He plays a violin "Dancla" by Antonio Stradivari, built in the year 1703.

"His stylistic knowledge is highly developed
and his open, charismatic personality convinces me
every time I hear him."

(Prof. Anne-Sophie Mutter)

About the edition

Concerts from Maulbronn Monastery, a UNESCO's World Heritage Site:
The abbey, founded by Cistercian monks in the year 1147, is the only completely preserved mediaeval complex north of the Alps. In 1994, it was the 13th German site added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and is thus in the illustrious company of such great monuments as the Egyptian pyramids and the Taj Mahal. The internationally renowned monastery concerts have occurred since 1968. The performances take place in the unparalleled atmosphere of the abbey's premises (monastery church, cloister gardens and lay refectory). Under the arches illuminated by romantic candlelight, 25 concerts are held every year. This series presents a selection of some of the most beautiful works of sacred and secular music.

The Edition
"What makes the European atmosphere so impressive? By which means can the European heritage be defined? Where do the roots of European culture lie? Within the context of our documentary series "Maulbronn Monastery Edition", we investigate these questions by documenting great works of European music with live excerpts from one of the most authentic sites this side of the Alps. I have personally experienced the perfect acoustics and architectural beauty of the concert site and was greatly impressed. A publisher has no choice but to endeavour to preserve these cultural gems for future generations."
