Dutilleux in Frankfurt/Oder

This Friday I will play one of my favorite cello concertos, Dutilleux’s “Toute un monde lointain” together with the Brandenburg State Orchestra and its musical director Jörg-Peter Weigle. Each of the five movements of this “a whole distant world” was inspired by Baudelaire’s “Les Fleurs du Mal” , and it is one of the true milestones of the cello repertoire as well as a fascinating sound painting, wandering between utmost tenderness and stillness and overwhelming climaxes.
Also, Frankfurt/Oder is only one and a half hours away from home, so I can finally cure my jet lag!

About Julian Steckel

“As an interpreter, I’ve started trusting my inner life more and letting the audience in. It’s a kind of vulnerability that makes you stronger.”

Written music is potential energy that a performer must unleash. Audiences can tell if a musician really feels that energy, or if their expression is second-hand. When Julian plays, he is sharing something fragile and alive.
