Ensemble Intercontemporain
Matthias Pintscher conductor

Ensemble Intercontemporain offers a 90th birthday salute to its founder Pierre Boulez, with music by Debussy, Robin, Pintscher - and Boulez himself.

For eight decades, Pierre Boulez has challenged the world of music – and Ensemble Intercontemporain has explored the pathways he’s opened. Tonight, under Mattthias Pintscher it continues to explore, and pays a 90th birthday tribute to its founder: Boulez himself, and two modern classics that never sound any less new.

Boulez founded Ensemble Intercontemporain in 1976, and he’s the presiding genius tonight - his influence resonates through the music of IRCAM graduate Yann Robin. Current music director Matthias Pintscher is an increasingly influential creative force, and his performance of Choc, his powerful “Antiphon” from 1996 will have a special energy and authority. But behind each of these works is the towering presence of Boulez himself, and performances of his Memoriale and the astonishing Sur Incises for three pianos, three harps and percussion will reveal afresh the beauty and sheer creative power of this great modernist mind.


Claude Debussy : Syrinx
Pierre Boulez : Memoriale
Matthias Pintscher : Choc (Monumento IV)
Yann Robin : Asymétriades

Odyssey Opera's month-long (May-Jun) THE BRITISH INVASION opera festival continues with a two nights of a double-bill of William Walton’s The Bear and Arthur Sullivan’s The Zoo (May 22 + 24). Based on a short play by Chekhov, The Bear is a humorous tale about an ostentatiously virtuous widow, Yelena Ivanovna Popova, and her late husband’s boorish but well-­‐‑intentioned creditor, Grigory Stepanovitch Smirnov. With a libretto written by B.C. Stephenson and music by Arthur Sullivan, The Zoo remained unpublished and unperformed for many years. This one-­‐‑act “musical folly” is sprightly and charming, unfolding through cleverly set arias, choruses, and patter.

Quiet Music Ensemble + Karen Power

Dan Bodwell: Kontrabass
Ilse De Ziah: Eello
John Godfrey: elektrische Gitarre
Seán MacErlaine: Klarinette
Roddy O'Keeffe: Posaune
Karen Power: Elektronik

Karen Power verbrachte im Kontext des künstlerischen Projektes „The Arctic Circle Residency“ intensive Wochen in der Arktis. Stark beeindruckt von der besonderen Akustik dieser nordischen Weltregion nahm sie ein Meer von Klängen auf, präparierte Eisblöcke mit Mikrophonen oder ließ Hydrophone ins Wasser sinken, um Geräusche unter dem Eis aufzunehmen. Diese Aufnahmen dienen in dem Konzert als aurale Partitur für die Live-Musiker, die den räumlich projizierten Field Recordings mit akustischen Instrumentalklängen begegnen. Die Hörer werden mit auf eine Reise durch reale und aus der Erinnerung nachgebildete arktische Klanglandschaften genommen. Das Stück reflektiert in seiner dialogischen und meandernden Form das Verhältnis zwischen Mensch und Eis.
Die Verflechtung von Instrumentalklängen und Alltagsgeräuschen sowie von akustischen Instrumenten und elektroakustischen Elementen bildet das künstlerische Zentrum von Karen Powers Schaffen. Sie untersucht dabei nicht nur die Gemeinsamkeiten und Eigenheiten instrumentaler und elektroakustischer Musik, sondern zielt vielmehr auf integrative Strategien, die die unterschiedlichen Potenziale anerkennen und in der kompositorischen Arbeit zusammenführen.

Die Komponistin, Klangkünstlerin und Improvisatorin Karen Power (Irland) ist 2015 Gast des Berliner Künstlerprogramms des DAAD. Das Quiet Music Ensemble kommt wie Karen Power aus Cork in Irland.

Eintritt frei

Karen Power spent in the context of the artistic project "The Arctic Circle Residency" intensive weeks in the Arctic. Highly impressed by the special acoustics of these Nordic region of the world took on a sea of ​​sounds, groomed ice blocks with microphones or hydrophones let fall into the water to absorb noises under the ice. These recordings are used in the concert as aural score for the live musicians who meet the projected spatial field recordings with acoustic instrumental sounds. The listeners are taken on a journey through real and simulated from memory Arctic soundscapes. The piece reflects in its dialogue and meandering shape the relationship between man and ice.
The intertwining of instrumental sounds and everyday sounds and acoustic instruments and electroacoustic elements forms the artistic center of Karen Powers work. It examines not only the similarities and peculiarities of instrumental and electroacoustic music, but aims rather to integrative strategies that recognize the different potentials and merge in the compositional work.

The composer, sound artist and improviser Karen Power (Ireland) 2015 Guest of the Berlin Artists Programme of the DAAD. The Quiet Music Ensemble comes as Karen Power from Cork in Ireland.
