HK Gruber: Frankenstein !! - Pandamonium for Chansonnier and Ensemble (1976-77)

Conductor and Chansonnier: KH Gruber
Moderator to be announced.

John Cage's special greeting to see in the new year lends its name to this wonderful series of workshop concerts, of which there have been well over 100, which was brought to life by the Ensemble Modern and Oper Frankfurt in 1993. The series continues this season and take place either at Oper Frankfurt, the Bockenheimer Depot or the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt. You can enjoy a concert featuring four young Polish composers organised by Simon Steen-Andersen, which corona put paid to last season, a portrait of the Cuban, born in Havanna in 1943, composer Tania León, who still influences American music life today and a concert concentrating on the Czech composer Ondřej Adámek, born in Prague in 1979, who came to Berlin, where he still lives today, in 2010 on a DAAD scholarship. Details about the fourth concert will appear here when known.
