An instrumental concert and yet the spaces that are sounded and structurally fathomed are poetically determined by poetry (Virginia Woolf, Heinrich Heine).

Dürer's enigmatic "Melencolia", Heine's cynical funeral song, Virginia Woolf's reflections on finiteness, pain and death, "Im hohen Holze", dialogue between four different "Hautbois" with tape.

The thoroughly prepared piano leads into deep, internalized sound, strange, rough. The oboe instruments - archaic, pure, lyrical, cutting, - counterpoint and merge again and again in unexpected ways.

Antje Thierbach grew up in East Berlin, studied modern oboe in Leipzig, Würzburg and Berlin from 1988 to 1997, and from 2003 to 2005 she performed historical performances and oboes at Katharina Arfken at the Schola Cantorum Basilensis in Switzerland. Her collaboration with renowned orchestras is the main focus of her concert activities Such as the Bavarian State Orchestra Munich, the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, the Sinfonieorchester des SWR, Staatsorchester Karlsruhe, among others In contemporary music. She regularly performs with the ensemble Modern, Klangforum Wien, Musikfabrik NRW, KNM Berlin, Ensembleadapter, Camerata Variabile Basel, Meitar Tel Aviv and others.
