abo.ut me

Singing. The joy of sound.   The flavor of words.   Seeking. The beauty of clarity. p.s.d.ch. Finely-spun sound. Adherence to the text. Accurate trills. Body work. Infinite lines. Breath. O and rests. Unbiased listening.    New ideas.   Creative concerns.   On to new adventures.  New music.   New forms.  Nothing is old. Tender. 

Searching together.     Initiate compositions. So many cultures.   Listen to everything.   Keep going.   Quality. 

Monteverdi, Merula, Bach, Haydn, Debussy, Chaminade, Stravinsky, Henze, XY.   A lot of friends.     A lot of joy.

RECONFIGURING THE LIED

Thrilled to announce the winner of our #LIEDINNOVATION-Competition 2021:

LIEDMOVIES. A MUSICAL EXHIBITION

with
Pia DAVILA, soprano & scene; Luise KAUTZ, stage directior; Simon JANSSEN, video; Valentin MATTKA, setting & installation

 

STATEMENT OF THE JURY

We were particularly impressed by the artistic quality, the musical level, the diversity of the projects and the interlacing of the art of song with socio-political issues of the 34 internationally submitted concepts. With the top-class submissions and the associated commitment, the artists have set a significant signal for the urgency of the classical music scene to grapple with the – at first glance supposedly – external-musical context. With this in mind, we would like to thank all artists for their commitment!

We are firmly convinced that social challenges need interdisciplinary approaches that incorporate the arts from the start. We regard our #LIEDINNOVATION format as a statement for the exchange of music, the performing arts, science and nature. Especially in difficult times, we want to enable and intensively promote such an indispensable space for collision and reflection.

We are particularly fascinated by the reconfigurations of the format “concert” in time and space. Many of the submitted concepts question the conventions of auditorium and stage, narratives and linearity.

The expansion of the traditional concert space provides impetus for future, contemporary discussions on the genre of art song. We would like to support this innovative strength with our finalists – and especially with the selected winning concept LIEDMOVIES.
