Information about the programme

Spotlight on the viola(s)! The composer and viola player Klaus-Peter Werani has assembled an all-viola programme with his BRSO colleagues Tobias Reifland, Anja Kreynacke, Giovanni Menna and German Tcakulov. It consists entirely of works from the modern era to the present day, all devoted to the deep and rich tone of the viola in combinations ranging from duo to string quintet. Founded during the covid pandemic, Watch This Space has evolved into a chamber music series that focuses not only on the new performance arena in Munich’s Werksviertel-Mitte district, but also on rarely heard works in smaller formats.
