A magical night for children
Listen, watch, participate
Since the founding of the ensemble, concerts for a young audience have been of particular importance in the artistic programme. Adapted to the needs and interests of the respective age group, new concepts are continually being developed in order to present baroque music in a playful and didactically valuable way.
In their children’s programmes, the members of the ensemble rely especially on the power of the connection of music and other arts, and in this way open to the young audience a stimulating and inspiring gateway to the music of the baroque.
Commissioned by the Philharmonie Luxembourg in 2019, SILBERLICHT was conceived by Choreographer Lillian Stillwell for both children and adults to enjoy. Combining the virtuosic dancing of two classically trained dancers and Ensemble Diderot’s exquisite musicianship, the performers interact with each other and the audience in this 45-minute piece for all ages.
