[January 2011 RICORDI home page announcement]
The Berlin Ultraschall [ultrasound] festival is discovering fine art by performing some concerts in the New National Gallery. Not only can concert-goers revel in the latest music, they can also enjoy modern paintings and sculptures.
On January 22nd, the Berlin born Ernstalbrecht Stiebler is involved in two concerts following on from each other: at 18.30 with the drum piece "...im Takt..." [in time] (1997) and at 20.00 with the world premiere of a commissioned composition. The composer wrote about his new ensemble work "ton in ton" [tone in tone]:
” ‘Quasi una passacaglia’ could have been the subtitle, if it had not summoned this form of long tradition culminating in Anton Webern – and there was a reason for this: the piece originates from a melody which is initiated by the bass (it can be heard straight from the start) that then systematically increases, a serial structure with varying minimalistic techniques. Repetition becomes the basis of change, nothing elegant or captivating, no story, but rather ‘music in itself’.” The world premiere, none other than the Ensemble Modern will be performing. Franck Ollu is conducting.

45 years have passed since the origin of this work. Now students of the renowned New York Juillard School of music play "Contradizione" for Grazyna Bacewicz’s (1909-1969) Chamber orchestra. Joel Sachs conducts the New Juillard Ensemble, that has taken the motto “Music from Poland after 1945” for the evening. On the 22nd of January in the Alice Tully Hall, Starr Theatre.
“I wrote "Des bonbons, de préférence les verts" [Sweets, preferably green] (2010) as a solo piece for the violinist Elodie Haas, who is currently artist in residence in Saint-Dié-des-Vosges. She was the first violin teacher for my 9 year old daughter Leonora, who will most likely play this piece this evening. It isn’t the most difficult of pieces, but it is certainly a short contemporary piece for children. Various techniques come into play like playing sul ponticello, sul tasto, or playing behind the bridge. Nevertheless everything is led there in a sensible way and it remains playful. It should be fun, like licking a candy...” says the composer Annette Schlünz about "Des bonbons, de préférence les verts", that will have it’s world premiere on January 29th in Saint-Dié-des-Vosges.
At the same concert Jörg Sonntag’s Goldige Zeiten Sieben Stücke für Violine solo nach Malerei, Grafik und Plastik (Golden Times Seven Pieces for violin solo after painting, graffic and plastic) (1988), can be heard. Shortly afterwards the world premiere of "C'est d'abord la lumière" (2010) takes place in Munich. The duet for violin and trumpet is dedicated to the long-standing curator of the musica viva festival. The soloists Nicolaus Richter de Vroe (Violin) and Thomas Kiechle (Trumpet) are members of the Bayerischen Rundfunk’s (Bavarian Radio) symphony orchestra. Date and venue: 6th February 2011, Munich Villa Stuck.
In the discussion about art, nature and music, body, time and space, Olaf Nicolai has since 1997 developed many different inter-disciplinary works. The latest project, developed for the Pinakothek der Moderne (Modern art museum in Munich) is a sound installation centered around the human voice – in it’s sensuous expressiveness, as well as in a political dimension. Songs by international contemporary composers such as Liza Lim, Rolf Riehm, Samir Odeh-Tamimi, who throughout the 12 months in 2011 will process the political events that occur, and have committed themselves to singing an ‘annual chronicle’, that can be heard live on 12 Sundays in throughout the year.
The Stuttgart vocal soloists will perform the world premiere of the songs. The performance will take place, unannounced on the large stairway in the Pinakothek der Moderne. Contrary to customary concerts, the object is to create an abrupt, escape like situation, which offers a special experience of sound and space to singers and listeners alike. The first installment of the concerts takes place on the 30th of January. Included in the performance will be two compositions by Rolf Riehm that will be seen for the first time: Song Nr 1 and Nr 2 from Two women for three female voices.
