How to become a composer? How to write an opera? How much time does it take? How does an idea develop? German composer Detlev Glanert gave answers to all those questions when he visited the BCS Music class in 11th grade. He brought not only the printed score of his latest opera “Oceane” that was recently premiered at Deutsche Oper Berlin – he also brought some sketches. In this way our students could learn how an initial inspiration takes its final shape.

Glanert’s visit last week was part of the preparations of our students to gain some insight into his music before they attended a performance of his opera this week. We thank Mr. Glanert for this fantastic opportunity.
