Jubilee concert

Jan 19
19. January 2018 19:30 - 20:30
St. Matthäus Church, Erlangen

To mark FAU’s 275th anniversary, the Fürth-based composer and FAU alumnus, Uwe Strübing, created the celebratory cantata ‘Truth and Love’. The University’s Music Director, Prof. Dr. Konrad Klek, has composed the biblical ‘Canticles of Love’ (1 Corinthians 13) in combination with poems by Friedrich Rückert and Matthias Claudius. It teaches subtly the science of humility. The world premiere, comprising the FAU University Orchestra, University Choir, and soloists, will take place at the end of the opening symposium in the St. Matthäus Church.
