Dr. Julia Grossmann, Director of the Orchester Jakobsplatz München, invites members of the Munich International Networking Group organizations to a special tour and concert event at Munich’s Jewish Center. 


The evening will feature a special musical production of Samuel Beckett’s Words and Music with the musical score by Morton Feldman, his Meisterwerk.  This will be performed by the Orchester Jakobsplatz München, conducted by Daniel Grossmann and accompanied by 2 highly ranked international actors, Bibiana Beglau and Götz Otto.  

Words and Music (also known as Joe and Bob) was originally written by Samuel Beckett as a radio play in 1961.  At the end of the 1980’s American composer Morton Feldman provided the accompanying music score.  With two speakers (one of whom also sings), piano, percussion, two flutes, two violins, and cello, Feldman's score is atypical of his later works, remarkably concise, crystalline and beautiful. 


Joe and Bob argue about supremacy, in a further variation of an age-old theme of whether the priority in a musical is in the text or in the music. 


After the concert, an Israeli-style buffet will be served in the Restaurant Einstein, also at Sankt-Jakobs-Platz 18.  .
