Just what awaits you in Wien Modern under the new artistic directorship of Bernhard Günther starting in 2016 will only be announced when festival tickets go on sale in the summer. But if you look at the subscription concerts that are either co-productions or cooperations with the Wiener Konzerthaus, you will find that the 29th edition of the Wien Modern festival is going to include 11 world and Austrian premieres, from James Clarke, Bernd Richard Deutsch, Peter Eötvös, Patrick Frank, Georg Friedrich Haas, Michael Jarrell, Jorge E. López, Olga Neuwirth and Wolfram Schurig.
The list of performers is equally promising: the Vienna Philharmonic under Peter Eötvös, the Wiener Symphoniker under Ludovic Morlot, the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra under its chief conductor Cornelius Meister, Klangforum Wien, PHACE, the Company of Music, the New York-based JACK Quartet, Quatuor Diotima, Martin Grubinger, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Nicolas Hodges and many more.
