SZ (February 2, 2018): “The Karl Amadeus Hartmann Society allows itself a new ensemble of its own. The critical spirit of the eponym is thus to be brought into the present.”
We feel particularly committed to the 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 series of events hartmann21 – with its soloist concerts and the format “Podium of Young Composers” – this request was taken into account in the past two seasons. Now we would like to build on this, but also break new ground and present to you for the first time our newly founded ensemble, the ensemble hartmann21.
In order to intensify the promotion of young national and international composers and to achieve a higher density of content, we have also developed a new concept for our concert series. An essential part of this is the collaboration with outstanding composers and performers, such as Peter Eötvös and Helmut Lachenmann (concert in June 2018) or Mark André (concert October 2018). Their extensive experience and international networking should benefit our musicians and composers and carry their quality perspectively to the “outside world”.
Under the title “Vexierbilder” we are pleased to present you in our premiere concert compositions by Jörg Widmann, Michael Jarrell and Toru Takemitsu as well as world premieres by Diana Syrse, Sebastian Schwab, Jan Masanetz, Tom Smith and Hans-Henning Ginzel. From solo, duo to trio instrumentation, the ensemble hartmann21 will carry you off into a play of light and shadow.
An event of the © Karl Amadeus Hartmann-Gesellschaft e. V., sponsored by Bayerisches Staatsministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst, Kulturreferat der Landeshauptstadt München, LfA Förderbank Bayern and Bezirk Oberbayern.
