As a former head of the Salzburg Festival, Peter Ruzicka has weathered many a storm in coping with uncertainty. And now as an artist, he turns it into an artistic theme: the task of the composer and conductor will be to balance out uncertainty factors with a steady hand in a double birthday concert in the Mozart Hall. In part 2 with the Minguet Quartet, Ruzicka’s Quartet »possible à chaque instant« (»possible anytime«) takes a second look at Stockhausen’s 1968 classic, »Aus den Sieben Tagen«, two different interpreations of open-ended playing instructions by James Saunders (see also 23.11.) and Peter Ablinger’s study on the impossibility of playing string quartets perfectly.
