An entire weekend of Patricia Kopatchinskaja – PatKop for short. Call her eccentric, call her out of the box, but one thing’s for sure: she is a phenomenon. She invites one of her favorite artistic partners, the top orchestra Camerata Bern, over to The Doelen.   

After Schubert’s Death and the Maiden and Schönberg’s Pierrot Lunaire¸ musical adventurer Patricia Kopatchinskaja now targets Haydn’s Die sieben letzten Worte. By creating this work, Haydn was  visionary: a set of slow movements which meditate on Jesus’ last words while being crucified. The last part, Il Terremoto (The Earthquake) is different in nature. In Kopatchinskaja’s words: “we don’t want to hide from the thoughts this work evokes, but look them right into the eyes.”
