Together they make a program in which the joy, but also the suffering that love brings with it is expressed in full beauty, but also with humor.

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!
