We feel particularly committed to the mission and intention of Karl Amadeus Hartmann to promote young, highly talented composers and performers and to introduce them to the humanistic and socio-political dimensions of his works. Within the framework of our new series of events, hartmann21, this request is now to be taken into account. In 2016/2017, renowned instrumentalists and composers such as Thomas Zehetmair (violin), Ruth Killius (viola), Francesco Dillon (violoncello), Alexander Lonquich (piano), Emanuele Torquati (piano) as well as Thomas Larcher (composer) will deal with Hartmann’s work in singularly “composed” programmes.
Following the intention of Karl Amadeus Hartmann, the “Podium of Young Composers” is a new platform that enables two selected young composers to create a programmatic programme for an entire evening and to compose temporally comprehensive works for it. The second portrait concert focuses on the South Korean composer Hankyeol Yoon and Jakob Stillmark, a native from Feldafingen. Following in the footsteps of the great time diagnostician Karl Amadeus Hartmann and referring thematically to the other events of the KAHG, works will be created especially for this concert, which consciously seek an artistic examination of today’s “realities of life”. In his works, Stillmark addresses inner restlessness as a symptom of our stimulus-flooded world, whereas Yoon gets to the bottom of the linguistic quality and linguistic ability of music. An in-depth conversation between the two composers and the artistic director of the concert series Andreas Hérm Baumgartner and Olena Garmash will round off the evening.
