musikfest berlin 09 concludes with a look back to its strong beginning. Through Haydn the Symphony climbed to the highest genre of instrumental music. The 104th, the Viennese grandmaster’s last symphony, gave pointers for the future. Shostakovich’s first symphony raised high expectations in Moscow, Leningrad, Berlin, Vienna, Paris and New York: a lightning-quick young composer was announcing unexpected historical opportunities. Bernd Alois Zimmermann expected a new sense of time in music through the integration of jazz into classical genres and forms.

A young ensemble arrives with a young programme: including pioneer works and the world premieres of a composer who aims at an immediate effect and counts on the listener’s presence of mind.
