Klangspuren Schwaz
Tyrolian festival
of new music

11/09-27/09/2020

With a powerful closing concert by Klangforum Wien conducted by Johannes Kalitzke with the world premiere of Clara Iannotta’s a stir among the stars, a making way marked the end of Klangspuren Schwaz 2020. The concert at the House of Music in Innsbruck, which also featured Liza Lim’s "Extinction Events and Dawn Chorus", concluded the 27th edition of the Tyrolean Festival of New Music (09/11–09/20/2020), whose motto this year was “Zeitzeichen/Marking Time”. The program, which had been reconceptualized due to corona, was in no way hampered by travel restrictions because nearly all the musicians performing at Klangspuren 2020 currently live in Austria. Making a virtue out of necessity, the densely packed program demonstrated the extraordinary quality and internationality of the Austrian music scene.
