Clocks without Hands
Three works by Ashley Fure, Justė Janulytė and Olga Neuwirth
An evening marked by three outstanding female composers of the present: Ashley Fure (*1982), Justė Janulytė (*1982) and Olga Neuwirth (*1968).
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.
