Evening programme Clocks without Hands (, 1.2 MB)

Ashley Fure’s (*1982) mesmerizing work for orchestra and electronics, “Bound to the Bow” was a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize. Olga Neuwirth’s (*1968) brilliant “Masaot/Clocks without Hands” – a poetic reflection on the nature of time and how memories fade – has sparked enthusiasm from Vienna to New York. The concert in the classicistic environment of Konzerthaus Berlin will be crowned by the premiere of a commission by the Lithuanian composer Justė Janulytė (*1982), whose large, multi-layered textures and often extremely slow, gradual metamorphoses unfold a fascinating, decelerating pull.
