Happy 125th birthday! Together we are 150! KLANGSPUREN is celebrating its milestone anniversary together with and the Tiroler Symphonieorchester Innsbruck, which traditionally kicks off the festival with the opening concert. In honor of the joyous occasion three festive pieces have been selected for Austria’s third oldest symphony orchestra. The concert is framed by two movements from the great symphony New England Holidays, written at the beginning of the 20th century by American visionary avant-garde composer Charles Ives: Decoration Day and Fourth of July refer to important national holidays in the USA and present a spectacular, anarchic-patriotic collage of songs, hymns, and marches, which were familiar tunes in the ears of the people back then. In the same spirit, but almost a hundred years later, is Birthday-Musik mit gutem Orchester, a piece composed in 1996 by the Tyrolean all-around genius Werner Pirchner for the 150th anniversary of the Tyrolean State Theatre. Also on the program is a piece by Rebecca Saunders – 2018 Composer in Residence for KLANGSPUREN and the INTERNATIONAL ENSEMBLE MODERN ACADEMY. The magical, richly timbral piece void for two solo percussionists and chamber orchestra was created by the British composer in 2014 for Dirk Rothbrust and Christian Dierstein. It is one of her most beautiful recent works. The program also includes the world premiere of a work for large orchestra by Joanna Wozny, a Polish composer, who has been living in Graz for a long time. The composition was co-commissioned by KLANGSPUREN and TSOI. Like Rebecca Saunders Joanna Wozny works with a great range of subtle, precisely applied mixes of timbre.
