Haas: New work for ensemble

Reading time: 1 min. world première Georg Friedrich Haas

At this year’s musica viva festival in Munich, Georg Friedrich Haas’ new work, Ich suchte, aber ich fand ihn nicht [I sought him, but I found him not], will be given its world première.

The title, taken from the Song of Songs, would imply that this is a vocal composition – “By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth; I sought him, but I found him not.” – but Haas’ composition is purely instrumental.

The work is a commission by the musikFabrik ensemble and the Arts Foundation NRW, and is for 18 instruments (including a contraforte and a harmonium).

And those who know Haas know that he will conduct his search in an extremely ingenious manner.
