Thank you, Lothar Knessl!

The fact that this evening is noticeably about the new, the young and the experimental is exactly what is needed to thank Lothar Knessl: The co-founder of Wien Modern, who died on August 6, 2022 at the age of 95, decisively rejuvenated musical life in Austria with passionate commitment. Angélica Castelló directs the gaze toward the heavens and the universe. Milica Djordjević invites us to slow down with her study of nocturnal sounds. Matthias Kranebitter explores the psychoacoustic cocktail party effect with the RSO Vienna in full action. Sara Glojnarić, the youngest of the three Erste Bank Composition Prize winners to be heard here, raises the density level with a »micromechanics of perfection« not least for principal conductor Marin Alsop. Mirela Ivičević draws the ancient oriental demoness Lilith in a radiant feminist orchestral portrait, »unpredictable, untamable, wild, full of blemishes, unadulterated«.
