Minetti Quartett (c) Irène Zandel

Juan de Dios Magdaleno (c) Juan de Dios Magdaleno“Lorenz Traummusik is my second string quartet; it relates to the American mathematician Edward Lorenz, considered the father of chaos theory. I concentrate in the piece mainly on the various temporal aspects of music, microtonality, characteristics of Klangfarbe and musical application of chaos theory, which particularly interests me at the moment.”

Juan de Dios Magdaleno’s String quartet No. 2 ‘Lorenz’ Traummusik’ will be premièred tonight by the Minetti Quartett at the MuTh in Vienna. De Dios Magdaleno is the winner of last year’s Ö1 Kompositionspreis, which is endowed with 10.000 Euro and was given for the fourth time by Ö1, the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB) and Universal Edition.
