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
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.
