Tristan Murail — un sogno

One day, long ago, when I was visiting him, Giacinto Scelsi showed me how he worked : by his piano was an  "ondioline", and 2 tape recorders (the ondioline was a kind of early synthesizer, which could produce a variety of sounds, and which, most importantly, allowed controlled  vibrato and micro-intervals). With this equipment, he improvised and recorded layer after layer of sounds, thus creating a sort of a sketch, or simulation, of the future piece - what we can now do much more easily and convincingly with computer software. Can we consider Scelsi a pioneer of the "computer-assisted composition" of today? 

Anyway, when I was approached by Klangforum and asked to participate into the Giacinto Scelsi REVISITED project, I was amazed to discover that the tapes that Scelsi had recorded were still existing, and that they confirmed what I remembered of my conversations with him, so long ago. Particularly moving was the tape for Anahit, one of Scelsi's most beautiful pieces in my opinion (of which we did a Paris premiere in 1975 with our ensemble L'Itinéraire). When you know the piece well - as I think I do - you can hear, or guess, through the distorted, eroded, and often ugly sounds of the tape, all the details of the piece to be born, even details of orchestration or playing techniques, such as extreme vibratos or tremolos.

My plans, for my contribution to the Giacinto Scelsi REVISITED project, are, starting from one of the unused electronic improvisations of Scelsi, as the project requests, after possibly 


Michael Pelzel — Sculture di suono – in memoriam Giacinto Scelsi

Lately, for various reasons to do with tonal, formal and poetic criteria, I’ve begun to concern myself [to engage with/to concentrate on?] more intensely and analytically with so-called “slow” music, that’s to say the slow movements of works by Wagner, Richard Strauss, Scriabin, Rachmaninoff, Schönberg (Transfigured Night) and also Mahler (the last movement of his 3rd symphony). The idea of a music which is “in flow”, which moves seemingly endlessly and with a formal pull towards a destination, fascinates me; so now I would like to try something poetic of the kind with  free-tonal means of my own.

Originally, the project Giacinto Scelsi REVISITED of Klangforum Wien did not come to my attention as directly linked with the above-mentioned considerations. The idea of writing my own music to compliment Scelsi’s original ondionline recordings might at first even have appeared to be a fascinating contrast – but perhaps there was also a clear inner connection. Both in the “stream-of-sound music” of the early 20th century and in Giacinto Scelsi’s music it is the continuous drawing of melodic-harmonic lines, which guide the music from within, give it direction and internal balance and finally also provide the coherence of the pieces’ outer form.

For example, Richard Strauss forged a link between his predominantly tonal harmonic sequences with the help of endless chromatic lines, series of bass sounds and internal, linear threads of reference. In Scelsi’s music, with its so-to-speak “supple organ sound”, elements with a strong reference to tonal music appear as well - for example in his excessive use of thirds and sixths. Creating a connection between these two worlds of sound almost becomes inevitable in the circumstances. The aim is to transform the sound of the ensemble into a kind of modelling compound with the capacity for modulation. Sounds are progressively transformed into other sounds. In this process, micro-tonal states of oscillation can manifest themselves, which are in places supported by processes of transformation rich in tonal colour. In the later course of the piece I will work with so-called “poly-spectral” harmonics, where with the help of different interlocking fifth-blocks, which function as a chordal foundation, I will construct a choral-type setting which will be coloured by a spectral superstructure in the regions of the treble.

Giacinto Scelsi, too, creates his specific, floating sound-scapes by juxtaposing stationary sounds and glissando-like lines with their subtle movements, which produce the vibrations and inter-tonal oscillations which are so archetypical for his music. My idea and my approach are therefore aimed at something like a synthesis of these two ideas: Very idiosyncratic and personally coloured harmonics which, with the help of compositional and tonal means, approaches a kind of convergence with Scelsi’s music. A continuously flowing stream of sounds with richly coloured, harmonic, compositional and ornamental nuances…

Klangforum Wien invites you to visit its rehearsal space – a hall full of instruments! Not only the number and diversity of musical implements that can be tried out is awesome – the space itself is impressive. Objects made of wood, drums, paper, wind – everything produces a sound. From these elements, the Archikids will create their own favourite sounds; they’ll build a model house and will check out whether sound wants to move in.

Graz, Helmut List Halle Musikprotokoll Un concert grandiose EA EA

Budget cuts? Even smaller instrumentations? In response to this, the hard-pressed forces are simply focused in “Un concert grandiose – Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra & Klangforum Wien” – pure luxury. Never before have Austria’s two finest orchestras for contemporary music performed a piece on stage together. Now the time has come: Klangforum Wien is now set to make music with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra. The piece – a “concerto grosso” for chamber ensemble and orchestra – was written by the composer Georg Friedrich Haas. The idea behind the work was to combine the orchestral sense of sound with the subtleties of an ensemble-style collective of soloists, thus creating a musical genre that is as new as it is luxurious. The ensemble as an essential vehicle of contemporary music as we know it today came into being in the latter half of the 20th century as a collective of soloists. Klangforum as a soloist and the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra as an orchestra now set out for new musical horizons.

Berlin Festival Ultraschall Portrait Michael Pelzel UA

Sein Ziel sei es, den Hörer „in einen traumhaften Sog von Farben und Klangströmen zu entführen”, sagt der Schweizer Komponist Michael Pelzel. Dabei arbeitet er mit äußerster Präzision, mit klarem Sinn für das Detail und einer Liebe zum Exzentrischen, ja Manieristischen. „Das Raffinierte, das Feine, das Ziselierte steht am Anfang und wird rückverwandelt in die rohe Kraft, in Urgewalt. Man kann sich das vorstellen wie einen Strom, in dem verschiedene Elemente mitgerissen werden, mal ein Fisch hochspringt, wieder verschwindet, ein altes Blech fast zum Vorschein kommt, wieder verschwindet, ein Holzast, von mir aus ein Baum mitschwimmt, mal eine Coladose und verschiedene Elemente parallel mitgerissen werden und entwickelt werden.”

Im gemeinsamen Konzert von Ultraschall Berlin und BKP spielt das Klangforum Wien drei groß besetzte Ensemblewerke, in denen Pelzels Kompositions-Artistik wunderbar zum Tragen kommt. Zugleich entsteht eine Porträt-CD für die Edition Zeitgenössische Musik des Deutschen Musikrats. (Ultraschall Berlin)

Madrid Teatro Real El Público UA
© Javier del Real (Teatro Real)/ Manufacturing helmets by the costume designer Wojciech Dziedzic

El Público is Lorca’s most difficult and mysterious play, and one of the great classics of modern Spanish theatre. Lorca wrote it in Cuba, just after his trip to New York, at a time of intense experimentation in art and life. Homosexuality is addressed openly in El Público. The play is a cry of defiance against bourgeois hypocrisy and a plea for sexual and artistic freedom. Two ways of understanding art are dealt with in the play: the Teatro al Aire Libre (Theatre in the Open Air), commercial and wishing to please the audience, and the Teatro Bajo la Arena (Theatre beneath the Sand), which aims to reveal that which is hidden and question established values. more

7.30 p.m., discussion

Vienna enjoys a vast cultural diversity. Looking behind the scenes, however, a number of cultural institutions seem rather monotonous. Rigid hierarchies and set structures confine cultural, ethnical and social diversity in many places – although in general terms it acts as creative mainspring for social change. In this particular respect, the economy seems to be one step ahead. Increasingly, companies professionalise their own diversity management. Do our cultural organisations have some catching up to do? What strategies could help radically to innovate organisational logics? In what way do cultural institutions have to change in order internally to live social diversity? (European Forum Alpbach)

Discussion: Matti Bunzl (Director designate of Wien Museum, Vienna), Edeltraud Hanappi-Egger (Rector designate, Professor and Head of the Department “Gender and Diversity in Organisations” at the University of Economics, Vienna).

Presentation: Monika Sommer-Sieghart (Head of the Cultural Programme of the European Forum Alpbach, Vienna)

Vienna, MuseumsQuartier, Halle E Wiener Festwochen Luci mie traditrici
© Monika Rittershaus

An enchanting melody, a song about beauty and its transience. The melody will return, spreading like a fine scent before finally dissolving … Salvatore Sciarrino’s opera Luci mie traditrici begins with this elegy by the Renaissance composer Claude Le Jeune. Dramatically collapsing the time arc of the plot, Sciarrino shows how a love is shattered, presents events compressed into one single day to tell a moving story in the life of the Italian composer and prince Don Carlo Gesualdo, Principe di Venosa, who in 1590 had his wife and her lover murdered. Sciarrino’s score, which reads like a grammar of emotions, draws upon the most delicate psychological nuances to guide us through the labyrinth of the human soul, its soaring heights and plummeting depths.

At the world premiere of Salvatore Sciarrino’s opera Macbeth at the Schwetzingen Festival of 2002, director, set designer and painter Achim Freyer set new standards with his stage rendition of the work. For Wiener Festwochen 2015, Achim Freyer will direct the opera Luci mie traditrici, a poetic masterpiece written by the Sicilian composer in 1998 – the drama of one day, of one whole life.

Mortier’s death leaves behind a large vacancy. The Ruhrtriennale honours him in a special way on the opening weekend of the 2015 season. With Sylvain Cambreling, Teodor Currentzis and Emilio Pomàrico, three conductors, who regularly worked together with Mortier and who share his conviction that opera remains a living art from today, take the podium . They will conduct the Klangforum Wien, which could be heard as part of Mortier’s Ruhrtriennale in the production “WOLF!”, playing music by Alban Berg, Anton Webern, Olivier Messiaen and Giacinto Scelsi, each composers who were particularly close to Mortier’s heart.

Some 150 years separate the first appearance of a turntable in a concert hall from the application for a patent for a new type of instrument designed by a Mr. Sax. True – that covers a few generations. But that’s as nothing compared with the distance in time to the oldest preserved bagpipe from the 15th century.

The Bai Chuan Award, taking place as a yearly event since 2009, is amongst the most important composers’ competitions in China. It is organized by the renowned music conservatory in Shanghai, which looks back on a long tradition and has, since its foundation, maintained an intensive dialogue with western culture.

The competition addresses young composers from China and abroad and is open to chamber music formations (3 to 6 players). 

Klangforum Wien will perform the compositions of the nine finalists in the course of a closing concert. This is going to be the ensemble’s first guest appearance in China, before it will return to Shanghai in May 2016 in order to introduce Chinese audiences to Beat Furrer’s music theatre Fama at the international Spring Music Festival.

Gesprächskonzert zum 100. Geburtstag von Karl Schiske

Wenn Österreich heute im Bereich der Neuen Musik zu den weltweit führenden Ländern zählt, verdankt es das zu einem nicht geringen Teil dem Vater des Klangforum-Schlagzeugers Lukas Schiske: Karl Schiske, dessen wir aus Anlass seines 100. Geburtstags am vergangenen 12. Februar gedenken wollen, hat nach dem Krieg als Komponist und Lehrer eine ganze Komponistengeneration mit der  Idee der Neuen Musik vertraut gemacht.

Der bekannte Dokumentarfilmer Kurt Brazda wird das Gesprächskonzert am 14. April, bei dem der Komponist Gösta Neuwirth sich an seinen Lehrer erinnern wird, für seinen neuen Film über Karl Schiske aufzeichnen. Das Gespräch mit Gösta Neuwirth wird Christian Meyer, Vizerektor für Außenbeziehungen der Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien, führen. Wir freuen uns darauf, Sie zu diesem Anlass im Haus des Klangforum Wien begrüßen zu dürfen.

Die Befragung der scheinbar unverrückbaren Gesetze des Musiktheaters steht im Mittelpunkt eines neuen Projekts des Klangforum Wien mit netzzeit und den Studierenden der Klasse von Anna Viebrock an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste Wien.

Der Grundgedanke von ECHOTECTURE ist Opernarbeit, die nicht primär durch Libretto und Komposition bestimmt ist, sondern durch die Parameter der räumlichen Umgebung, in welcher das Werk von Librettisten, Komponisten, SzenografInnen und MusikerInnen gemeinsam geschaffen wird. Zu ihrer Verwirklichung wird auf die verlorengegangene
 Idee des Theaterkomponisten zurückgegriffen, der in täglicher, enger Zusammenarbeit mit der Kompanie schnell, mit Frische und Leichtigkeit, zu Musik macht, was Raum und Tag ihm zutragen. Mit Peter Jakober und Matthias Kranebitter sind zwei Komponisten der jungen Generation eingeladen worden, diese Aufgabe zu übernehmen.

Enlightenment may have banished the demons to the underworld of non-existence, but this doesn’t prevent them from ruling our hearts and senses. Georg Friedrich Haas and Mollena Lee Williams-Haas know how to deal with them.

We have absolutely no proof that there exists a life after death. This is self-evident, as rational argument has no access to realms in which nothing can be counted, weighed or measured. Music, however, likes to stray every now and then into the sphere beyond the threshold in order to have a look around.

Life could be so harmonious without man’s irrationality and unpredictability. Serial composition techniques constitute a remarkable contribution towards the elimination of individual capriciousness; or you could also say: towards getting rid of man as source of error in the process of composition. Science? Music!
