Composer portrait: Georg Friedrich Haas in Schwetzingen

Reading time: 1 min. Georg Friedrich Haas

The Schola Heidelberg and Walter Nußbaum present a composer portrait of Georg Friedrich Haas at the Schwetzinger SWR Festspiele on 9 May 2013. Among the pieces played will be the Hertervig-Studien and SCHWEIGEN.

Later that day, the Kairos Quartett will perform Haas’ String Quartet no.3, In iij. Noct.” in complete darkness, with the four musicians playing from memory in different parts of the room. Darkness, [...] is not present in this piece merely as an absence of light, but becomes the key theme of the work” (Georg Friedrich Haas)
