Ultraschall Berlin - Festival für neue Musik

Notos Quartett

In the history of music since the 18th century, the genres of string quartet and piano trio have been the focus points in chamber music, while the piano quartet was doomed to exist in the shadow with a few prominent exceptions by Brahms or Dvořák. Even today, little has changed. The Notos Quartett has therefore made it its aim to cultivate the historical repertoire for its formation and to close the gap in the field of piano quartets in the present. The concert covers a range from Morton Feldman's "Four Instruments", a classic for piano quartet, through to three current works.

Ultraschall Berlin - Festival für neue Musik

ensemble recherche

Chaya Czernowin's "Ayre" is an acoustic microscopic view of the smallest musical movements, which in their sum unexpectedly create a new sense of space. In his late work "Plektó", Iannis Xenakis expands the stylistic devices of many of his works, including rhythmic complexity and massive sound eruptions with contrapuntally, densely interwoven lines. Johanna Maria Staud uses a verse from a poem by American poet Elisabeth Bishop for an exploration of post-Lachenmann Modernism. With "Pomen I" for viola solo, Paul Beckett introduces himself as a new member of the ensemble recherche with a solo piece for his instrument. Finally, Christian Mason's new work "Zwischen den Sternen" (between the stars) will be premiered. In his own words the composer defines composing as "searching in sound for fleeting solidifications of intangible experiences".

Sebastian Berweck, Silke Lange und Martin Lorenz

When digital sound processing began its triumph in the 1980s, a whole repertoire of electronic music pieces disappeared almost in a flash. Among the victims of digitalisation also was "Stries" by Bernard Parmegiani, a triptych for audiotape and (analogue) synthesizers from 1980. Sebastian Berweck acted as an archaeologist, restoring the work, making files readable, and getting hold of the old synthesizers. From anachronistic devices once again emerges "an atmospheric soundscape full of drones and small sound characters, which, however, neither want to be understood as an alliteration to reality nor as a musical narrative" (Sebastian Berweck). They reveal that immersion is not an invention of today. One of the first ever electr(on)ic works dates from 1938. Johanna Beyer, a student of Henry Cowell, wrote "Music of the spheres" for three unspecified "electric instruments". This music of the spheres functioned as a utopian interlude in the larger, fragmentary work "Status Quo", which strongly criticized the political state of affairs.

Appstage Bologna

A selected group of international students developed in a four months course by the Appstage program at the Alma Danza dance school in Bologna a triple bill evening program that is now presented on two evenings at Radialsystem's Studio A. Under the direction of the Italian choreographer Elisa Pagani of DNA Company, the Isreali-Italian choreographer duo Michal Mualem & Giannalberto de Filippis and Luc Dunberry, Canadian dancer choreographer and long time member of Sasha Waltz & Guests they developed three short Performances. The aim of the Appstage program is to provide dancers who have completed their dance education a frame, that offers them a similar working experience as in a dance company or an intensive dance project. In this way, they have a chance to develop as creative dancers and as performers and find their way into the cycle of the professional dance world.

Neue Vocalsolisten

A programme about magic and thus about the tension between appearance and reality, about the (sometimes devious, but always surprising) game with illusions, but also about the power of deduction, which is needed, for example, for passwords. As in real life, the passwords in Georges Aperghis' vocal work of the same name are random and meaningless, a "polyphony of meanings that no longer means anything". Valerio Sannicandro has used texts in Old High German for his "Zaubersprüche" (magic spells). This dark and equally ironically broken work evokes rituals in which the singers perform in various constellations and achieve a spatialisation of sound with purely vocal means. Michael Beil's "Die Drei" (the three) is part of his work cycle on Goethe's "Hexeneinmaleins" (witch's algebra) and plays with tonal and structural combination possibilities resulting from the number 3 for six singers. Michael Pelzel also plays with combinations in his "Etüdenbuch zu Diabelli" (etudes on Diabelli). The piece is the preliminary stage of a musical theatre about the conjuror Grazio Diabelli, a formerly sublime magician who was deserted by his artistry. The kind of witchcraft and magic the two young composers Sara Glojnarić and Yiran Zhao will come up with shall remain a surprise. One thing is certain: this is a programme in which Neue Vocalsolisten will bewitch the audience.
