Colors of Nature Klangfarben der Natur
Volcano Asención in Ometepe, Nicaragua.
In cooperation with Lutz Gerlach, LEC laser event company developed this project “Colors of Nature”, which combines classic and modern themes. Soloists on harp, violin, piano and modern electronic keyboards delight the audience by playing the most beautiful melodies of Tchaikovsky, Translatuer and selections from Antonio Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” in a contemporary style. “Classic on Vogue” is an innovative performance of classical works that inspires both young and old.

The pianists of the duo Piano-Forte-Total, Ulrike Mai and Lutz Gerlach, play not only softly and loudly, but also vary their solo performances with duets for one or two pianos. They perform romantically and expressively through a range of musical history.
Lutz Gerlach, the artistic director of the project, is not only a studied pianist but also a well-known composer, producer and event artist. By conceptualizing and realizing spectacular events he has made himself a name throughout Germany. Among others, he has worked with “Styles in Stijl” at the music festival of Potsdam Sanssouci, “Das Licht” at Quedlinburg Cathedral and “Panta Rhei.” Other highlights of his work include “Swimming Piano 2003,” “Fest der Kunst” (Cottbus) and “When the dream leaves the night,” performed before thousands of spectators on the beaches of Zingst and Prerow.
The classical pianist Ulrike Mai is one of the most famous artists of that genre in northern Germany. She played previously with the North German Philharmonic, at music festivals in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and is active as a soloist.
The scene is set for every season with lavish fireworks. The senses are overpowered by “spring,” while “autumn” is vigorously expressed in a percussive thunderstorm. Large screen projections as well as light and laser animations harmonize in an outstanding spectacle, generated in this multimedia dimension for the first time.
Staged by a chamber orchestra in a unique multimedia show, classical music, jazz and pop, past and present, are linked in a striking manner.
