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.

Music, however, likes to stray every now and then into the sphere beyond the threshold in order to have a look around.

After the much-discussed cancellation of his directing engagement at the Bayreuth Festival, the artist Jonathan Meese will bring the conflict with Parsifal to a new dimension. No post-creative act can be expected at the premiere of MOONPARSIFAL ALPHA 1-8 (ARCHMATRIARCH OF ESPIONARCHY), but rather, an encounter of the visual artist Meese with the composer Bernhard Lang. With their new Parsifal project, the two will transport Wagner’s mythos into a revolutionary moment in a far-flung future. (Wiener Festwochen)

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!

The story invented by the Tuscan writer Carlo Collodi in 1881 describes the many adventures of a puppet following his whims and desires. After playing hooky from school to follow two miscreants, Pinocchio lets himself be drawn into the world of toys with a number of successive roles – a donkey, in a circus and in the belly of a whale – until the day arrives when the puppet transforms himself into a responsible little boy.

After turning his play Grâce à mes yeux (Thanks to my Eyes) into his first opera, presented at the 2011 Festival d’Aix, Joël Pommerat returns with this creation of an opera for all audiences, to the music composed by Philippe Boesmans. Pinocchio will mark his second collaboration with the Belgian composer – the first gave rise to the opera Au Monde created in 2014.

The staging is at the crossroads of wonderland and reality. It looks at the real world through the concrete vision of a tree trunk that takes shape under the carpenter’s plane to create a theatre of planks and trestles. This creation brings together the Ensemble Klangforum from Vienna in the orchestra pit and several on-stage musicians, under the baton of conductor Emilio Pomarico. Stephane Degout swaps his costume of Pelléas for that of the leader of the troupe whose main mission is to tell the story, while Chloé Briot, with her experience in playing children’s roles (Yniold in 2016 and the title role of L’Enfant et les sortilèges in 2012) plays the puppet.

and perhaps our own senses of perception will themselves be transfigured by music which depicts the crossing of this same final threshold – specifically, music from great last works fully completed or left unfinished, including Mozart’s Requiem, the Quatre Chants pour franchir le seuil by Gérard Grisey and Gustav Mahler’s Ninth Symphony with its dying final pages, in which the musical line is slowly extinguished.

Salzburg, Kollegienkirche Salzburger Festspiele Time with Grisey

 

... Time with Grisey allows the audience not only to spend a few hours discovering the composer’s music, but perhaps also to experience time differently. Startling soundscapes open up almost organically – for example, the finale of the magnificent large-scale cycle Les Espaces acoustiques, which begins as a viola solo before snowballing into a full-on orchestral piece with a group of solo horns. Prior to this, the programmes on offer pair Grisey’s music with works by friends, contemporaries and kindred spirits. Some of them lived lives that were cut short: in 1983, the Canadian composer Claude Vivier was murdered in Paris at the age of 34, while Grisey himself died in the same city in 1998, at only 52. His poignant final work, the Quatre Chants pour franchir le seuil, addresses the crossing of the threshold between life and death. Grisey himself did not live to hear its premiere.

The story invented by the Tuscan writer Carlo Collodi in 1881 describes the many adventures of a puppet following his whims and desires. After playing hooky from school to follow two miscreants, Pinocchio lets himself be drawn into the world of toys with a number of successive roles – a donkey, in a circus and in the belly of a whale – until the day arrives when the puppet transforms himself into a responsible little boy.

After turning his play Grâce à mes yeux (Thanks to my Eyes) into his first opera, presented at the 2011 Festival d’Aix, Joël Pommerat returns with this creation of an opera for all audiences, to the music composed by Philippe Boesmans. Pinocchio will mark his second collaboration with the Belgian composer – the first gave rise to the opera Au Monde created in 2014.

The staging is at the crossroads of wonderland and reality. It looks at the real world through the concrete vision of a tree trunk that takes shape under the carpenter’s plane to create a theatre of planks and trestles. This creation brings together the Ensemble Klangforum from Vienna in the orchestra pit and several on-stage musicians, under the baton of conductor Emilio Pomarico.

In the 70-minute composition, he merges 23 portraits of their individual personalities, often informed by years of intense collaboration, and written into the fingers and the voice of the musicians. A composer’s affection turned into music. (rainy days)

Eva Reiter’s energetic string quartet In groben Zügen basks in instrumental noise(s) with as much relish as the new composition Vgf II by Yoshiaki Onishi, scored for the same ensemble as Quatre Chants pour franchir le seuil. In Gérard Grisey’s masterpiece, the differences between four different eras and cultures vanish in the face of death. But for Grisey, death does not mean the end but a new beginning. The journey through the world of the dead is followed by a "Berceuse", the music of a new dawn. (rainy days)

Centre and Periphery
Vienna was, beyond doubt, at the epicentre of the convulsions which irreversibly altered the musical world at the beginning of the 20th century.

conductor: Bas Wiegers



With SCAN, its young concert project on the fringes between interpretation and improvisation, Klangforum Wien strikes out in a new direction with the aim of shedding a fresh and different light on composed music by means of re-instrumentation, improvisation, electronics, fragmentation and re-constitution of the parts. Expanding the areas for music making, stretching the limits drawn by the musical text and the conductor, freedom instead of security, liberating the musical routine – this is what SCAN is all about. Starting with a composition which is fixed on the page of a score, the ensemble creates a new work by freely treating the defined specifications, thus arriving at a “piece about a piece”, which comes into being live, in front of the audience’s ears at the concert venue.

The interactive composition project SCAN is part of the Klangforum Wien lectures in "Performance Practice in Contemporary Music" (PPCM) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz. A concert performed by students and as well their lecturers in the MUMUTH is the highlight of every year's PPCM course.

Paradise © Johannes Gellner

Young Performers Repertoire, part of the larger Interfaces EU-funded project, aims to cover up the indisputable lack of sufficient repertoire of innovative, New Music for children aged 6 -10. Therefore, international composers have been commissioned to compose works between 5 to 8 minutes for commonly played instruments and/or chamber music groups adding to the repertoire taught at music schools or within the music classes of schools where feasible. The culmination of the project will be concerts of this new repertoire together with the creation of an open electronic archive of scores. A training seminar will be held in Cyprus for preparing the instructors who are involved in the teaching of this new repertoire.
