Worte sind wirklich das Letzte, was es an dieser Stelle braucht. Vielleicht sollten Sie diesen Text mit geschlossenen Augen lesen. »Verstehen« lässt sich die Musik von Clemens Gadenstätter am besten »im Hören, jenseits des Begrifflichen«. »Begreifen«, um zum Kern der Sache zu kommen. Eine Geige, ein Bogen, Hände, Körper, Berührungen, Bewegungen. Ein Blasinstrument, Lippen, Mundraum, Muskelspannungen, Artikulation, Linien, Geschmacksnuancen, bitter, sauer, scharf. Ein Akkordeon, Arme, Empfindungen, eine Persönlichkeit. Eine E-Gitarre, Effektgeräte auf dem Boden, eine Polyphonie von vier Gliedmaßen, Choreographie, Komposition, Zusammenbringen der Wahrnehmungsmöglichkeiten, Ohr, Auge, Körperwahrnehmung, Tastsinn, Geschmack. Fünf Porträts, Selbstporträts, Studien für Soloinstrumente, für besondere MusikerInnen, TänzerInnen, eine Anthropologie ohne Worte.

»Ich verstehe diese Stücke als Versuche, sich einer ‹Anthropologie als klangliche Wahrnehmung› anzunähern – eine zentrale Idee meines Komponierens in den letzten Jahren.« (Clemens Gadenstätter)

For the first time, New York City is hosting a festival celebrating the music of Wolfgang Rihm (b. 1952), one of the most influential German composers of our time. This is the second concert in a series of events stretching over three months, and will present intimate settings of the poetry of Mörike & Rückert, the piano trio Strange Scene II, which was meant as an homage to Robert Schumann, as well as the US premiere of ET LUX, a "requiem" for vocal quartet and string quartet.
This concert is generously being supported by the General Consulate of the Federal Republic of Germany in New York.

The Ogresse is a new musical journey created by vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant. With its dark and romantic “fairytale-like” story, The Ogresse is a delightfully audacious addition to Salvant’s increasingly eclectic body of work. A generational talent adored by critics and all types of audiences, the young singer is already a master of musical storytelling, and she sells out every concert she plays at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Musical support comes from L’Orchestre L’Ogresse, a 13-piece chamber ensemble assembled for the show by composer and bandleader Darcy James Argue. Comprised of top-tier jazz musicians and the MIVOS string quartet, the versatile group brings to life a genre-defying musical landscape dreamed up by Salvant and Argue.

Orpheus Alive retells the tragic myth of Orpheus, casting the titular character as a woman; Eurydice, Orpheus’ fallen lover, as a man; and audience members as gods of the underworld who hold Orpheus’s fate in their hands. Choreographed by Robert Binet, Choreographic Associate of the National Ballet of Canada, and featuring a commissioned score by acclaimed composer Missy Mazzoli, Orpheus Alive is a story of love, loss, and an extraordinary artist facing the limits of his mortality. Company dancers and the Mivos Quartet perform excerpts, and New York City Ballet Associate Artistic Director Wendy Whelan moderates the discussion with dramaturg Rosamund Small, Binet, and Mazzoli before the ballet’s world premiere in Toronto.

THE MAMLOK PRIZE FOR INTERPRETERS OF CONTEMPORARY MUSIC

Amber Evans, soprano, and the Mivos Quartet present an arresting joint concert as 2019 winners of the Dwight and Ursula Mamlok Prize for Interpreters of Contemporary Music. The concert honors the life of the remarkable German-born composer, who as a precocious teenager fled the Nazis, later to become a fixture in New York’s new music scene. A short film by Anne Berrini will also depict how Mamlok reestablished an active late career in her native Berlin before her death in 2016. The evening will feature two key works by Mamlok and other composers championed by the artists. Presented by the Dwight and Ursula Mamlok Foundation.
