Kick Off György Ligeti 100

January 13, 18.00 - 19.30

Wiener Konzerthaus, Mozart-Saal, Vienna, Austria

An ecstatic universe of sound, shimmering micro-polyphony, polyrhythmic serrations – in his time, György Ligeti greatly extended the realm of new music. Claude Vivier salutes us from Uzbekistan with his work «Bouchara», and in «Xi», the Korean expression for the smallest unit of things, Unsuk Chin embarks on an exploration of the primordial cell.

The concert from our cycle series BRUCH.PUNKT will take place at two starting times: 6:00 pm + 8:30 pm.

Between the concerts – FERMATE

To mark the beginning of the anniversary year on the occasion of György Ligeti’s 100th birthday, the stage is set for 100 metronomes: As part of the FERMATE, his Poème Symphonique. For 100 Metronomes (1962) will be performed. In the ticking overall sound of the metronomes, rhythmic structures of varying complexity emerge – until the last metronome* falls silent.

The FERMATE starts at 7:30 pm.
