Frizz23

After seven years at the Engelbecken we are moving into a new and modern office building. Still in Kreuzberg, we rent a space in a cultural co-ownership project “Frizz23” situated in the south of the historic “Zeitungsviertel“.

Enno Poppe’s Rundfunk for 9 synthesizers

Anekumena

Barbara Buczek‘s huge orchestral setup – maybe the largest “chamber ensemble” so far – comprises of 89 instruments. She finished this composition in 1974 and some parts of it have been performed during the “Warsaw Autumn”.
Only now, more than 40 years later, the complete opus will be published by PWM for the first time and recorded soon as part of the “sto na sto” project.
We digitally cleaned up and re-layouted the handwritten full score, while the 500 pages of instrumental parts were newly engraved.

Acht Brücken – Köln

Orgia, page from the full score

During the final concert of this year’s festival on the 11th of May a new work by Hèctor Parra will be premiered:
“Orgia – Irrisorio alito d’après la pièce « Orgia » de Pier Paolo Pasolini et la Passion selon saint Jean de Jean-Sébastien Bach”.
The Ensemble Musikfabrik and Concerto Köln will perform under Stefan Asbury.

Livre pour quatuor

Revision detail

Seventy years after its conception Philippe Manoury and Jean-Louis Leleu reconstructed the 4th movement of Boulez’ only string quartet “Livre pour quatour”. It will soon be published in a new complete edition by Leduc and performed for the first time. This image depicts a snapshot in the editing process towards the final version.

On April 10, the work will be played at two emblematic venues simultaneously: in Berlin’s Boulez Saal by the Artitti Quartet and at the Philharmonie de Paris by the Quatuor Diotima.
