Wien Modern 36
31/10/23 – 02/12/23
Wien Modern stands for inspiring encounters between listeners and artists of new music of all shapes and colors. After three years in which artistic planning of concerts was, as it were, only conceivable with the handbrake on, we are cheerfully laying down our restraint for the next edition and working on the most colorful palette of conceivable forms of music listening so far in the history of the festival. Here's a peek into the festival kitchen: The Vienna Symphony Orchestra opens with Peter Jakober simultaneously in the Great Hall, Mozart Hall and Schubert Hall. The following day, Klangforum Wien and the mdw - University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna bring 50 pianos to the Great Hall, which Georg Friedrich Haas has tuned to hundredths of a tone for his piece »11,000 Strings«. RSO Wien, Singakademie, the Vienna Choral Girls and Roland Kluttig let St. Stephen's Cathedral breathe with Mark Andre's magnificent "rwh 1-4". RSO Wien and Klangforum Wien together begin an extraordinary festival week with the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor with Rebecca Saunders' "wound" in the Golden Hall of the Musikverein, which leads, among other things, to Judith Unterpertinger in the medieval cloister of Klosterneuburg Abbey.
