Happy New Ears

Workshop Concerts with the Ensemble Modern


The composer Hanspeter Kyburz (born 1960) lives and teaches in Berlin. He approaches every new piece of music with meticulous and (self)analytical »research«. In dealing with system-theoretical models and computer-supported form processes, the planning of structures is very important in the composer's work. The Ensemble Modern want to honour a man, many of whose works they have played the world premieres of, by dedicating the event on March 3rd 2015 (8pm) – part of the Happy New Ears series at Oper Frankfurt – to him.

The audience and composer will hear his »work in progress« Résaux, under the baton of Jean Deroyer and piano solo Kaspars Tanz/Kaspar's Dance, played by Ueli Wiget. Both works are – which is often the case with Kyburz compositions – influenced by the phenomena of other artistic spheres, such as literature, art or film: Kaspars Tanz was inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke's poem Der Knabe, about the myth of the foundling Kaspar Hauser - Résaux by the the long narrow rolls of Indian ink pictures by the 15th century Japanese artist Sesshu Toyo.
