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

Also for its 20th anniversary, Ultraschall Berlin remains true to its mission of presenting essential developments in contemporary music in an exemplary way, bringing composers and performers into relationship with one another and showcasing current works in performances that set standards. New Music, only inadequately described with this catchphrase, is more diverse than ever and knows no blinkers or genre divisions. A key feature of Ultraschall is therefore keeping the balance between world premieres and first performances and highlighting works from the recent past in a contemporary, changed context. Hence, the five concerts at Radialsystem will feature works by Natacha Diels, Christian Mason and Sara Glojnarić alongside works by Georges Aperghis, Morton Feldman and Iannis Xenakis. The Notos Quartett gives new impulses to the formation of the piano quartet, which has so far received rather modest attention in contemporary music. Sebastian Berweck, Silke Lange and Martin Lorenz play music for three synthesizers and the Ensemble Adapter presents, among others, "Music for Japan" and "Music for Europe". Ultraschall Berlin does also take place at Haus des Rundfunks Berlin, Heimathafen Neukölln and Volksbühne. You can find the day ticket for Saturday here: https://radialsystem.reservix.de/p/reservix/event/1324770 An event by Deutschlandfunk Kultur and kulturradio vom rbb.
