Open Spaces in Salzburg

Reading time: 1 min. Georg Friedrich Haas


Open Spaces has connections with the music of the American composer James Tenney, who died in 2006, and whose musical thinking and radical compositions have exercised a strong influence on my work. In Open Spaces I make use of Tenney’s technique of freely ‘wandering’ between the notes of an overtone chord, as well as the slow glissando in a gentle tremolo from his solo violin piece KOAN. (Georg Friedrich Haas)

On 11 August Peter Rundel conducts the œnm at the sold-out performance of Georg Friedrich Haas’ Open Spaces at this year’s Salzburg Festival. On percussion: virtuoso Martin Grubinger.
