mdw Rahmenhandlung. Katharina Bleier: Das Innere des Klaviers
Monday, 18. November 2019, 18:30
For some 20th century composers, the piano had become too limited: the instrument's musical and sociological importance in the 19th century seemed to leave no more »room« for new ideas and the sound spectrum of the black and white keys appeared to have been exhausted. The piano's interior (as well as other parts of the instrument) offered new possibilities for composing and experimenting. The lecture looks at the phenomenon's historical context and trajectory and is accompanied by an exploration of 21 new contemporary works.
