Parcival Módolo named First Guest Conductor

Braziilean conductor Parcival Módolo was named First Guest Conductor of the  Collegium musicum Potsdam symphony orchestra on the occasion of symphony concerts on 22nd and 23rd November 2014 at Frederic Church  in Potsdam Babelsberg and Herz Jesu Church in Berlin Zehlendorf.


Parcival Módolo

Parcival Módolo, who is one of Brazil's leading conductors, has already inspired musicians and audiences in the two preceding years. More than once, he has made it possible to get to know music by Brazilean composers who are virtually unknown in our latitudes, and to perform some of it for the first time in Potsdam and Germany.

Parcival Módolo will visit Potsdam again next year to cooperate with the Collegium musicum Potsdam symphony orchestra.

Two Potsdam People in Brazil

When Potsdam composer Gisbert Näther and conductor Knut Andreas travel to Brazil together, it naturally has to do something with music, more precisely with new music, recently sprung from the pen of Gisbert Näther and scheduled to be premiered on October 8 in Campinas, a city of 2.5 million inhabitants in the state of São Paulo, by the Orquestra Sinfônica da UNICAMP.

Näther's newest work, the concerto for trumpet and orchestra, was commissioned by the symphony orchestra of the University of Campinas. Recipient of numerous awards for his works, the composer travels to Brazil for the first time in his life to attend the final orchestra rehearsals, the premiere and a second performance.


Gisbert Näther

When Knut Andreas was invited by the Campinas symphony orchestra to lead the October symphonic concert as guest conductor, he proposed the premiere of a trumpet concerto by Potsdam composer Näther in Brazil, featuring Brazilean trumpet soloist Paulo Ronqui, who has already apperared two times in Potsdam, Falkensee and Eichwalde with the Collegium musicum symphony orchestra in its "Brandenburg-Brazil" series and has enthralled both audiences and the musicians.

For a number of years, the Collegium musicum symphony orchestra has promoted contacts between Brazilean and local musicians and composers. The upcoming premiere of Gisbert Näther's trumpet concerto under the direction of Knut Andreas in Brazil represents a new highlight of this cultural exchange.

CMP needs a grand

donationAt its symphony concert on April 19, 2008, the Collegium musicum Potsdam symphony orchestra launched a fundraising drive under the motto "CMP needs a grand". Since a concert grand piano is becoming increasingly important for the orchestra’s rehearsals and concerts, donations will be collected for a time to help with the acquisition of this special (orchestra) instrument for the orchestra’s inventory. 250 Euros were collected on the first day already -– an excellent start. The donations currently amount to: 6108.23.

A heartfelt thank you to all donors!
