Happy New Ears

This series of workshop concerts launches its 30th season! A good excuse for a something special: honouring the great Hans Zender by performing hisCabaret Voltaire. (world premiere 2002). As was the case last season, two concerts belong to the ICCS (International Composer & Conductor Seminars) and their up and coming artists: the Lucerne Festival Academy have been invited along with selected composers involved with the rich in tradition Warsaw Autumn Festival. There are also two portrait concerts for the renowned conductor and composer Johannes Kalitzke and composer Brigitta Muntendorf, whose interdiciplinary output has earned her international acclaim. Come and hear them talking about their work, illustrated by exerpts of their music.


Workshop concerts with the Ensemble Modern - a joint Ensemble Modern, Oper Frankfurt & the University for Music and the Performing Arts Frankfurt project. Part of the ICCS's »curtain_call«, the Ensemble Modern and International Ensemble Modern Akademie. The ICCS is made possible because of generous support from the Aventis Foundation.
