Iannis Xenakis would have been 100 years old in 2022. We pay tribute to this great of new music with a performance of his ensemble work “Palimpsest”. Palimpsest means as much as erasure and overwriting of something existing. In Xenakis’ work, the term refers to compositional procedures. In all other works, however, we encounter music about music, there are, as it were, older sonic layers that shine through materials that have been superimposed on them, more or less clearly. In Lars Petter Hagen’s “Harmonium Repertoire” these are some twists and turns from the music of the Romantic and late Romantic periods – one thinks of Schubert, Bruckner, Schönberg and Mahler – which are recalled as if in a dream. Adrian Eröd instrumentally fans out the piano movement of Egon Wellesz’s “Lieder aus Wien”. Periklis Liakakis, who had already approached Schubert’s “Winterreise” compositionally almost a decade ago, has now illuminated some of Schubert’s Heine songs in a new way, especially in terms of tonal color.
Marko Nikodijevic, on the other hand, refers in “Gesualdo Dub – Raum mit gelöschter Figur” to a tiny fragment from Gesualdo’s “Moro, lasso, al mio duolo”. In Nikodijevic’s work, the death-addicted madrigal of the Renaissance composer becomes the starting point of an excess heightened into intoxication: one of the most suggestive ensemble compositions of the recent past.
A concert introduction will take place at 6:45 p.m. in the Solitär.
