Johannes Maria Staud: Two world premières

Reading time: 1 min. world première Johannes Maria Staud

His numerous world premières testify to Johannes Maria Staud’s standing as the most successful Austrian composer of his generation. None other than Pierre Boulez is to present his new orchestral piece Contrebande (On Comparative Meteorology II) with the Ensemble Modern Orchestra in Paris on 6 Nov. Other performances: 7 Nov in Luxembourg, 8 Nov in Berlin and 9 Nov in Frankfurt.

Wien Modern, which is focusing extensively on Staud this year (29 Oct, RSO Wien, conductor: Peter Eötvös), will play host to the world première of Über trügerische Stadtpläne und die Versuchungen der Winternächte (Dichotomie II) – with its title inspired by Bruno Schulz – for string quartet and orchestra (5 Nov, RSO Wien, Arditti Quartet, conductor: Emilio Pomárico).

Lagrein, Sydenham Music and Vielleicht zunächst wirklich nur will be showcased in a portrait concert (10 Nov, Vienna Konzerthaus).
