BartolomeyBittmann, Zyklus KAMMERMUSIK PLUS

CHAMBER MUSIC PLUS

Vienna, Lieder, Tango and more

Well, here’s a surprise! Old man Haydn plays the vibes, Bach dances the tango, and Viennese music gets a fresh coat of paint. In this concert series, the classics are not the same as they used to be. Which is just as well, because they’ve been considerably enhanced in the process. The Erlkings turn the art song form on its head, and perform Lieder in English; the celebrated musicians of Tango5 invite their listeners to a Milonga, where they play deep into the night; and the fiery playing of Matthias Bartolomey (cello) and Klemens Bittmann (violin) threatens to set their instruments ablaze. Meanwhile, Roland Neuwirth and Tscho Theissing reclaim our wonderful Viennese music, pulling it that little bit closer to modern times. Johannes Fleischmann, Magda Amara and Günter Haumer summon those old Hollywood émigrés Korngold and Zeisl back home to Vienna. And the Eggner Trio, together with Tobias Moretti, remind us of one of the greatest Tyrolean artists, Werner Pirchner. A host of musicians who are happy to dispense with traditional musical boundaries and historical conventions.

Vienna premiere. After its first performance in August 2022, in Haydn’s own Lower Austria, this evening marks the Vienna premiere of the new Erlkings programme. Inspired by Haydn’s Lied “Eine sehr gewöhnliche Geschichte” (A very common story), for the first time THE ERLKINGS include several Lieder by Joseph Haydn alongside their more familiar material of Lieder by Franz Schubert. Translated into modern English, and arranged for a highly unusual ensemble comprising voice, guitar, cello, tuba, drums and vibraphone, Haydn’s Lieder sound like they never have before. Set sail with THE ERLKINGS on a musical journey. Come along and enjoy “a most unusual story”, and other surprises!

Have you ever been to a Milonga? A dance where they play nothing but Argentinian tango music? After three or four “Tandas”, or tango sets, the dancers all change partners. This takes place during the “Cortina”, an interlude in which the tango DJ can play whatever they like - as long as it’s not suitable for dancing! Although there may well be some couples who really don’t want to be split up... The “Tango5” transform MuTh into Buenos Aires. They play “Tango Nuevo” using the same instrumentation that was used in the original Piazzolla versions, but mix it with some of their own contributions. Sophie Heinrich plays some Bach; Maria Radutu performs Villa-Lobos; Miloš Todorovski, on bandoneon, plays his own music; Andrea Wild accompanies herself on guitar; and Ivaylo Iordanov plays some surprising double bass. A concert and a Milonga. Totally irresistible!

For ten years now the BartolomeyBittmann duo have been heavily involved in developing a personal, progressive repertoire of music to suit their chosen instruments, which of course are strongly associated with the classical music tradition. From the start they concentrated on original compositions, and they focused on experimenting with new techniques for playing the cello, violin and mandola. The pieces range from powerful rock riffs and breakneck virtuoso passages to more intimate grooves and gentle cantilenas. Finding the instruments’ true acoustic essence, without resorting to the use of electronics or effects, has always been at the heart of this project. This new programme “z e h n” celebrates their ten-year anniversary. It showcases new works, most of which were composed during lockdown.

A musical stroll through our local neighbourhood: The music of Vienna ... It’s immediately recognisable, from the very first bar. But what exactly is it? What makes it what it is? And most of all: does it still exist? Or does “the music of Vienna” mean Schubert, Lanner and Strauss - and did it die with them? Definitely not, say Messrs Neuwirth and Theissing. Suddenly, this short stroll has turned into something much longer. It stretches down through time, across many generations, all the way to here and now.  The wonderful Wiener Theatermusiker are part of this tradition. The First Violin places her bow ... They start to play ... Oh, this Lanner piece is marvellous! And so is this Schubert! Then, suddenly - CAUTION! WET PAINT! What’s all this about? VIENNA, WITH A NEW LOOK!

When Fono Forum reviewed the Johannes Fleischmann album “Exodus”, it enthused over a “very carefully designed programme” and “impressive reserves of stylistic empathy, along with undoubted dedication”. In this recording the violinist, together with the pianist Magda Amara and baritone Günter Haumer, interprets music by Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Eric Zeisl. These Viennese composers escaped Nazism by emigrating to the USA. They became major figures in Hollywood during the golden age of film music. This is the first time that the full CD programme has been performed live, and it is taking place right here in Vienna.

Werner Preisegott Pirchner was not only a musician and a composer; he also drew, and wrote poetry as well. Describing his first encounter with Pirchner’s music, Tobias Moretti remarked “I thought: ‘It’s as if Mozart has been born again’”. The Eggner Trio are joined by Tobias Moretti, who has a special connection to this exceptionally gifted Tyrolean, as they take on Pirchner’s three piano trios.
