in vain: the most beautiful work of the new millennium

Reading time: 1 min. Georg Friedrich Haas

The Italian magazine “Classic Voice” announced Georg Friedrich Haas’ work in vain to be the “most beautiful score of the new millennium” – the result of a survey in which 130 experts of European contemporary music participated. In 2013 Sir Simon Rattle said that the piece was “one of the first great masterpieces of the 21st century”.
