Klangspuren Schwaz 2013

The Klangspuren Festival Schwaz (12-28 September) celebrates its 20th anniversary. As usual, the festival impresses with extraordinary concert locations (such as a livestock auction house or even “Rent a musician“ in your living room). Hans Zender is composer in residence of the International Ensemble Modern Academy, which runs from 3 to 16 September.

6 works from the UE catalogue will be performed at the Klangspuren, the world première of Johannes Maria Staud’s K’in | Music for bassoon and string quartet will be a highlight of this year’s Tyrolean festival for new music.
