Experience music in words and pictures

In celebration of the seventieth anniversary of one of the ten best orchestras in the world

Can the fascination for music also be expressed in words and pictures? The lyricist Nora Gomringer and the documentary photographer Andreas Herzau pursue this question within the scope of an innovative test arrangement. They plunge into the cosmos of the Bamberg Symphony: at home in Bamberg, on international tours—this is the daily routine of this extraordinary orchestra. While Herzau assumes the role of the participant observer, with her overall lyrical approach 2015 winner of the Ingeborg Bachmann Prize coaxes the necessary voice from the orchestra. They capture what is being played both on as well as behind the stage, and shine a light on individual musicians as well as their place within the group.

The result is a book in which lyric poetry and photography act in concert for the purpose of making the invisible, the music, visible!
