Philharmonie Hall, Berlin



“In art there is no beginning and no end, there is also nothing new and nothing old in an absolute sense. There is just the motion, the interchangeablity, both are nothing deliberate, violent, but natural occurrences of organic life that never stands still but constantly gives birth to new forms and proves its inner strength with precisely this perpetual drive.” (Paul Bekker 1924)

Wolfgang Rihm’s composition “Transitus” for orchestra already contains a reference to audibility in its title. “What matters, says Rihm, is which and how much energy is put into motion. Music is a transfer of energy. ” With “Transitus” he wanted to write a piece that materialized on its own, where one thing grew out of another, yet all events flow into an interminability that is the ambient noise of every music. “Transitus” as a passage or movement process is an image for human existence par excellence. In his most recent work, the Konzertstück für Klaviertrio und Orchester which will premiere on this evening, two different musical forms will be brought together: intimate chamber music and orchestral music. Both works, composed in 2012-2014, will be placed in context with the great C major symphony by Franz Schubert from 1825/26. This constellation is not only fed by the contrast between current and historical events. It is also not a nostalgic glance backwards, but rather an expression of a conception that regards the before and the after of historical construction as permeable and incomplete.

Wolfgang Rihm : Transitus for orchestra
Wolfgang Rihm : Concert Piece for piano trio and orchestra
Franz Schubert : Symphony No. 8 in C major D 944

Kuss Quartett
Bennewitz Quartet
Quatuor Zaďde

1814: Congress of Vienna. 1914: outbreak of the Great War. 2014: Reflexion? Retrospect? The periods which this concert covers in a great arc from Viennese Classicism to the present day take in a major slice of European cultural history: the re-drawing of the map of the continent and its political landscape in 1814, the awakening of the nations and the disaster of 1914, and the modern Europe of 2014. Musically, these changes are represented by Schubert’s mood of a new dawn, Suk’s nationalist Bohemian self-confidence, Arnold Schönberg’s fin-de-sičcle sensibilities, and Oliver Schneller’s highly rarefied new musical language.

Franz Schubert : Allegro assai for string quartet in C minor D 703 ("Quartet Movement")
Josef Suk : Meditace na staročeský chorál "Svatý Václave" (Meditation on the Old Czech Chorale "St Wenceslas") for string quartet op. 35a
Oliver Schneller : "Introjections" for string quartet
Arnold Schonberg : "Verklärte Nacht" for two violins, two violas and two cellos

Bennewitz Quartet
Heath Quartet
Quatuor Zaďde

Once again three dates: the first performance of Beethoven’s F minor quartet and the re-ordering of Europe in 1814, echoes of Czech nationalism in Antonín Dvořák’s op. 106, and the moving music of Slavomír Hořínka inspiredby the Lampedusa refugee drama in 2013. This musical journey sketches Europe’s history from the discovery of cultural identity across the awakening of nationalist emotions all the way to the migration issues of the present day.

Ludwig Van Beethoven : Quartet for two violins, viola and cello No. 11 in F minor op. 95 ("Quartetto serioso")
Antonin Dvorak : Quartet for two violins, viola and cello No. 13 in G major op. 106
Slavomír Hořínka : "Songs of Immigrants" for two violins, viola and cello

Rhythms, Blues and Bagatelles

Herbert Schuch (Piano)

Three first prizes at international piano competitions in the space of a year laid the foundations for the 35-year-old Romanian-born Herbert Schuch’s rise to the pinnacle of global pianism. One of the competitions was the Vienna International Beethoven Competition, dedicated to a composer whom the artist includes in his sophisticated programmes time and again. In Bonn he is combining two late piano works by Beethoven with a highly virtuoso piece by the American composer Frederic Rzewski, along with eleven works by Ligeti, which were influenced by Bartók and Hungarian folk themes.

Ludwig Van Beethoven : Bagatelles for piano op. 119
Gyorgy Ligeti : "Musica ricercata" for piano
Frederic Rzewski : "Winnsboro cotton mill blues" for piano
Ludwig Van Beethoven : Sonata for piano No. 32 un C minor op. 110
