Following the intention of Karl Amadeus Hartmann, the “Podium of Young Composers” is a platform that enables selected young composers to create a programmatic evening. Following in the footsteps of the great time diagnostician Karl Amadeus Hartmann, works are created that consciously seek an artistic examination of the realities of our lives today.
Thus Elena Tarabanova draws on her personal experience of the terrorist attacks of 2013 in Volgograd, traces references of human consciousness to untouched nature and contrasts this with a musical psychogram of a soul suffering in the world. Severin Dornier, on the other hand, directs our attention to the aesthetics of earlier art epochs and traces the present in narrative attitude and sound language through the moment of a “look back to the front”.
An event of the © Karl Amadeus Hartmann-Gesellschaft e. V. in cooperation with the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München, sponsored by Anja Fichte Stiftung, Theodor-Rogler-Stiftung und Stiftung Bayerischer Musikfonds.
