in a different light
Just between us- many thanks go out the
Collegium Musicum for being cool with
answering not really serious questions.
Contrary to popular belief, many members of the Collegium
Musicum are students.
If you were to add the ages of all the members’ ages, you’d
get 1390 years, which is about as old as the city of Marseille
The average age of the musicians is 35 years. The average
height is 1.66m.
A new attraction opened not too long ago in Munich. The
“Hi-Sky” is the tallest transportable Ferris wheel with 78
meters. If you were to stack all the members of the orchestra,
then the one at the top would see the same view as from the
A member of the orchestra likes birds.
Only 3 members of the orchestra are fans of Preußen
Münster, which is the same amount as the fans of FC Bayern
in the orchestra.
Evi Mustermann of the orchestra is: a woman, who plays the
violin, who prefers a substantial meal, who loves summer
and walking with her dog around the Aasee. Furthermore,
she’s a fan of Dortmund Football, enjoys spending her
holidays in different cities and the cultures there, but also at
the beach, in whose nearness she gladly spends time relaxing
with a glass of wine.

hot tips for Concert-
Maybe you‘ll get ausal spot.
Try it out.
Your perfect concert visit.
What am I gonna wear?
Generally: You can wear whatever you want. However, sweatpants do
tend to attract more attention than a blazer.
Oh, no! I’m late! What now?
Unfortunately, you’re gonna have to wait. After the concert begins, you
may not enter until the next musical intermission.
Passing notes? Or may I speak?
In the case of acute speech necessity, it is advised you best wait until
the break. There are more than enough chances to talk before and
after the concert!
When do I clap?
He who carries the concert program (or this pamphlet!) has a clear
advantage. Therein is written, how many movements a piece has.
Vaughan William’s Concerto has 3 movements, for example, but you
only clap after all three have been played!
Typically, you also applaud the conductor, as soon as he enters
the stage for the first time, and you applaud the soloist after his
… What about my phone, though?
It’s best to keep it off. A ringtone during the performance doesn’t just
disturb you, but everyone around you and the concert!
Did someone forget his violin case?
If you see a violin case or something similar at the exit, then that’s the
promoter’s plea for financial support. The concert carries no admission
charge, but the orchestra would be very pleased with a small donation!
Your seat admidst the

experience up for grabs!!!
Were you always curious of how it feels like to sit in the middle of the
sound happenings of a fully occupied orchestra? You’re curious about
how the conductor’s instructions look like from a different perspective
and about how the internal gears work?
You have a unique chance right here, right now, to witness this live.
We’ll make it possible! We’re distributing 4 seats amidst the orchestra
during one of the coming rehearsals of the collegium musicum
How do you participate in this raffle? Easy: During intermissions
and at the end of the concert, our team will be happy to hand over a
participation card. Please write down your contact information and
into one of our collection boxes it goes. That’s it!
The winner will be chosen on the 5 th July 2019. We’ll contact you
shortly afterwards with more precise information.
So, don’t let this once-in-a-lifetime chance go to waste and participate
in our raffle! Maybe you’ll be sitting amongst the orchestra soon. Also:

Pssst… Another thing: You’re contact information is in good, safe hands
that won’t give it to a third party. Promise!
Asked & Answered
Katharina Wildförster and
David Rene Steike
in the Haydn-Institute
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Now the earth was formless and void, and darkness was
over the surface of the deep.”
This is how Raphael enters while singing, just after the
purely instrumental representation of chaos. (Intro)
On top of the top – Papa Haydn and THE CREATION
Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, and even wonderchild Mozart – all
musicians, that left us all too soon. What else would they have had
created, if they had only lived longer?
Joseph Haydn, composer of The Creation, was a consistent
contemporary who lived to the age of 77. He worked as the music
director in the court of the noble family Esterházy for more than 40
years. Above all else, Haydn is known for his string quartets and over
100 symphonies. Yes, you read that correctly: One hundred different
musical pieces of a single category. Even Mozart called him Papa Haydn
because he was one of the most influential composers of his time – a
role model and musical experimenter, no less.
We asked ourselves who and of course, how such a comprehensive
music collection is created and processed. For this reason, we met up
with Dr. Armin Raab, scientific head of the Haydn Institute in Cologne.
He reported of the long-time task of publishing so many pieces in
the form of Haydn’s complete works. One has to be up to scientific
standards, to investigate all of the handwritten documents of Haydn
and one needs to closely examine the sheet music – nonetheless,
“duds”, which are pieces that were incorrectly categorized under
Haydn, are not all too rare. His oratory “The Creation” was a sensation
in the music scene of his time according to Raab: “An improvement of
a famous composer, of whom no more improvement was expected.”

Behind the Program
Ralph Vaughan Williams
uncovers motivation &
Ludwig van Beethoven
Europe sets the example for this concert.
Europe is dealing with exam stress: Brexit-Chaos, European elections
and the apprehensive question; how will the 400 million eligible voters
decide? Brussels, the EU and other construction sites in the European
contexts – they are the ones that inspired the program. The credo: Set an
example with music!
Haydn’s “The Creation” begins with the chaos, practically a tribute to
Brexit, and with all those British politics influencers, you can’t forget
Vance Vaughan Williams. You might ask yourself, “why is Beethoven in
this concert then”? Well, Beethoven supported the princes of Europe
while they were fighting in the freedom wars against Napoleon. The
world premiere of the 7 th symphony was a benefit concert and was
an enormous success. The winnings were given to the victims of the
massacre in Leipzig – Napoleons deciding downfall.
This applies to back then as well as right now: When things get tough, art
and culture are sought after to bring the people closer together.
Digression: Vaughan Williams already witnessed the gruesome events
of the war in World War I. He composed for the English Radio and
for political reasons during World War II. Like Beethoven, he was a
thoroughly political person, they were always broadcasting, even after
they both lost their sense of hearing. Extra Digression: The Hymn of
Europe (since 1985) is an instrumental representation of the main
musical subject of “The Ode to Joy” from the final movement of the 9 th
symphony. By whom? – Duh, by Ludwig Van Beethoven.
Music & Film
Carolin Constanze Albers
has a tip for Cinephiles.
Haydn and Beethoven?
I‘d Rather go to the movies!
But do you remember the movie The King’s Speech, which won four
Oscars in 2011? Everyone was holding on to their seats in the most
exciting part, where Colin Firth appears as a stuttering King George
VI who has to unite the whole nation before the beginning of the war.
The audience wanted to find out, whether or not he will deliver his
important speech over the radio successfully without stuttering.
Do you know what kind of music plays in that scene? Beethoven’s 7 th
Slowly, deeply the celli begin to play the second movement. Just as
hesitant as the King during the beginning of his deliverance of the
speech. As Colin Firth gets more and more confident and convincing,
more and more instruments are introduced, thus leading the scene
to its impressive climax. Desperation, fear and suspense, but also
confidence, hope and a feeling of community is what we experience
through Beethoven’s music!
We may not be able to offer you Colin Firth, but if you want to
experience this emotional Oscar-worthy scene live for a change, then
you should definitely not miss the upcoming symphony concert!
And who knows? Maybe you will discover other music that is ready for
the big screen…

(Timpani) in a
bang that drum!
Niklas Hardenacke studies Human Geography
towards his master’s degree. He let’s his drumsticks
dance once a week in the H1.
How did you get into learning how to play your that instrument?
I first started playing the rock drum set. My school music teacher did also
slowly bring me into classical music. This way, I had played in the first
orchestras of my hometown. And that’s how the ball started rolling.
Cool band or orchestra? What would you choose if you had to?
I actually did both! – not that you think I only work in classical music. But,
if I had to decide, I would actually stick to classical music...
Why? What attracts you to classical music in comparison to a band?
Good question... (laughs). A large orchestra can knock your socks off
without any electrical amplification, but it can also be quiet and filigree!
And this co-operation of many instruments as a single, closed body of
sound! It’s just a great feeling!
I’m guessing that especially with timpani, it can take a long time before
your cue comes, right?
That’s true! Beethoven is actually ok, but sometimes, it means twiddling
thumbs (laughs). ... or even playing on your phone! Maybe at rehearsals,
but don’t tell the conductor. (laughs)
When the violins are playing and someone screws up, it needn’t
necessarily be heard. But if you do something wrong, then it’s a little
That’s true! It always depends where the piece is, but if I were to bang a
drum in the middle of a general pause, then it would be really obvious!
Last but not least: what do you hope for the upcoming concert?
That it goes as well as it always has and that we have plenty of people in
Just in a good mood.
In this orchestra, young and old play music together. A
bunch of interesting people out of the university as well
as in it come together every Thursday from 19:45 to the
rehearsals in the H1 and have fun together.
The atmosphere is easy-breezy. The conductor Jürgen
Tiedemann has a boat load of experience in music and his
programs always have an interesting twist.
