Hans Zender celebrates his 80th birthday

Reading time: 1 min. Hans Zender

Composer and conductor Hans Zender celebrates his 80th birthday today, 22 November 2016.

The works which he entrusted to Universal Edition between 1979 and 1990 reflect certain important facets of his intellectual world: the interest in music theatre (his Joyce opera Stephen Climax), the allure of Japanese culture (for example the flute concerto Loshu V), the importance of the voice and, with it, of literature (settings of Mechthild von Magdeburg and Henri Michaux).

We extend our warmest congratulations!

A selection of works by the composer will be performed at this year’s Wien Modern festival on 28 and 29 November:
