From 2 to 20 September 2016, the Musikfest Berlin opens this year’s Berlin concert season. Universal Edition is strongly represented with performances of Wolfgang Rihm’s Tutuguri, his Concerto „Séraphin” and with Pierre Boulez’ complete works for piano solo.
On 3 September Wolfgang Rihm’s Tutuguri after Antonin Artaud opens the Musikfest Berlin. Daniel Harding conducts the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.
Usually in music all of the energy is channelled towards connection – Artaud’s text doesn’t evoke connection, but the opposite: explosion. (Wolfgang Rihm)
Matthias Pintscher and the ensemble intercontemporain perform the German première of Rihm’s Concerto “Séraphin” on 9 September.
For our MusikSalon we talked to Aimard about Boulez.
