About the Event

Is contemporary music truly unsingable? In a poetic fragment by Friedrich Hölderlin, quoted by Georg Friedrich Haas in relation to his orchestral composition "Natures mortes," the notion of singing becomes an intriguing prospect. Haas, in his work, aims to reinvent and explore something akin to singing through the combination of distinct chordal overtones and rhythmic patterns inspired by the art of Roy Lichtenstein. His tenure as Composer in Residence in 2022 at Grafenegg left a lasting impression on the collective memory, with his "Parkmusik für Grafenegg." Now, under the direction of Enno Poppe, the Composer in Residence for 2024, the Tonkunstler Orchestra delivers electrifying new music. Appropriately, they also present the Austrian premiere of Poppe's latest orchestral masterpiece, "Strom."
