Visiting Ensembles

Klangforum Wien

Past Dates

The Klangforum Wien – already guests of the Berliner Festspiele at the Theatertreffen this year – are bringing us the first complete performance of the three "Material Pieces" by Enno Poppe.

The titles are equivocal codes of the organic and give indications to how the musical substance will sound: whilst "Wood" shows a stable and yet pliant structure – to a certain degree the vegetable – "Bone" is, for long periods, of a tonal hardness, shrill and dry. Finally, the idea behind "Oil" is that of a viscous and at the same time energetic, potentially explosive flow.

The composer, bearer of the Förderpreises of the Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung 2004, will comment in person on the pieces at the concert.
