Bringing something full of evening back into concert life in the early 21st century is a worthwhile undertaking. The now common fragmentation of contemporary music programs in the almost canonized form of twelve-, fifteen- or (be careful, excessive !!) twenty-minute works by four different composers undoubtedly has its meaning and merits. It is just a shame that the evening filling has receded into the background not only in the formal-external but above all also in the material-content sense, compared to this solidified norm.
For the coming seasons, the Klangforum Wien has conceived a number of projects or taken them back into its repertoire, which allows a concentrated examination of the great work of a single composer or a long and calm encounter with the music of our time.
