Evening 1: 15.11.2019

Alien

1.) noun: a creature from a different planet

2.) adjective: strange and not familiar

Using the sci-fi classic Stranger from a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein as a basis, the program begins with the book-inspired highly virtuostic Alien for recorders and electronics by Moritz Eggert which brings a talking extraterrestrial to life. Throughout the concert the book’s martian protagonist Valentine Michael Smith is embodied by a countertenor in a series of musical scenes. Additional pieces are a Filidei quartet in which utmost concentration and precision is necessary to perform with balloons, Key Jane from Michael Beil where the pianist performs on a virtual piano in dialogue with two video versions of herself and Eggert’s gothic fantasy The Son of the Daughter of Dracula versus the Incredible Frankenstein Monster (from Outer Space) for ensemble and electronics. A highlight is a visit by one of the toy piano scene’s most exciting figures: Pawel Romanczuk, performer and collector of over 300 toy pianos!

Evening 2: 16.11.2019

Across the Universe

Our second evening explores different paths of spirituality via rituals, mental states and expressions with a touch on the hippie-culture. Beginning with a transcription of the like-names Beatles classic, it continues on to ancient Sanskrit mantras, a newly commissioned piece around a multiple-armed deity by Sascha Lino Lemke and Mark Applebaum’s Echolalia für 22 amplified Dadaistic rituals.

Additional works from Mark Applebaum, Simon Steen-Andersen und Manuel Rodriguez Valenzuela show unique requirements and new languages of expression for the performer in high-tech settings such as as Aphasia where Applebaum developed his own gestural language to synchronized sound and Steen-Andersen's Difficulties Putting it Into Practice, in which a duo dialogues with yet another unique language comprised up of amplified paper- and vocal effects.

Our special guests include percussionist Cornelia Monske, mezzo-soprano Anna Vishnevska, countertenor Benjamin Lyko, recorder player Gudula Rosa, composer and melodica player Fabian Svensson (Sweden), as well as Paweł Romańczuk (Poland ) – instrument builder, musician, owner of a collection of over 300 toy pianos and author of the book Toy Piano Phenomena. Our Non-Piano Ensemble of 5 pianists will be joined as well by cellist Michael Heupel and violinist Irene Husmann.
