Tiroler Festspiele Erl -Vienna Sound Forum
Klangforum Wien - a collective of intrepid tightrope walkers, explorers and questioners. 24 musicians from ten countries are constantly exploring new horizons of artistic creativity together with the leading composers of our time. In 2020, Klangforum looks back on 35 years of uncompromising work on the NEW in music and wants to use this wealth of experience to expand its own repertoire zone. In addition to producing the most recent works of our time, the soloist ensemble will increasingly question the past 100 years about what is new in music. The Klangforum Wien's range of tension extends from the farewell from Gustav Mahler's "Lied von der Erde" to the beginning of the musical decade that will begin in 2020. The masterpieces of today were often the misunderstood works of the past, the highly energetic works of today will sometimes be the masterpieces of the future. It is undoubtedly exciting to witness the moment of musical creation by Klangforum Wien. Open-minded in thought, virtuoso in playing, precise in listening - Klangforum Wien draws from an unmistakable sound, creates spaces of experience and challenges the audience.
It is all about the event in the best sense of the word: a sensual experience whose immediacy cannot be denied. The new in the music of Klangforum Wien speaks, acts and beguiles. This music concerns everyone!
