Kurs auf Neue Musik - Modul 8: Xenakis on the centenary of his birth

Lecturer: Dr. Pavlos Antoniadis

The composer and architect Iannis Xenakis would have turned one hundred years old on 29.5.2022. Throughout his life, the performances of his highly complex orchestral works, such as Metastasis, have caused a sensation. The great importance of the Messiaen pupil for the music of the twentieth century is undisputed, as is his influence on subsequent generations. As a long-time assistant to the architect Le Corbusier, he also supervised important building projects worldwide. Highly worth seeing and recommending as a first approach to Xenakis' music is the excellent documentary Xenakis Revolution. Baumeister des Klangs in the Arte Mediathek.

Speaking on today's edition of Course in New Music is musicologist, pianist and Xenakis compatriot, Dr. Pavlos Antoniadis, who is a close associate of the Paris Ircam and the Xenakis Foundations.

Free admission, donations requested!

Course in New Music (Part 3): Stories of Soldiers and Others

Lecturer: Andreas F. Staffel

The First World War was a major caesura and had a great impact on the work of composers of that time. Exemplary for this are the music theater work 'Die Geschichte vom Soldaten' (1917) by Igor Stravinsky and the opera Wozzek (1925) by Alban Berg, in each of which a soldier is the main character.

Both works will be the focus of our evening. In addition to excerpts played on the piano, historical recordings will also be heard. Furthermore, we will experience the fascination of the so-called "golden twenties" in jazz-oriented piano works by Schulhoff and Hindemith.
