STARTPUNKT KLASSIK (TAKING CLASSICAL MUSIC FURTHER)

Bach, Schumann & Co as never heard before

Johann Sebastian Bach enters the laboratory, and the romantic Lieder of Robert Schumann undergo live-cell therapy. Classical music will always be classic; but it can also be re-thought and developed further. When great composers who have been forced into exile return home, such as Erich Wolfgang Korngold or Eric Zeisl, there is often something of a fresh start in their music. Never more so than when one of their shining lights, Ludwig van Beethoven, meets a musical successor such as Charlie Parker. That’s when it really kicks off. As Jean Jaurès famously said: Tradition should not mean worshipping ashes, but passing on a flaming torch. And we’re very happy to keep it blazing! A concert for everybody, with an additional offer for schools.

The Stuttgarter Nachrichten wrote: “The musicians annexed baroque musical formats, and infiltrated them like anarchists, working from inside out to smuggle in elements of jazz and pop”, and then added: “Great fun!” The Bach.Lab.Group was formed in 2014 for the Stuttgart Music Festival. The aim was to revisit Bach through interactions between baroque players and jazz musicians, and to place him in the context of here and now. This gave rise to a concert programme with a wealth of interconnected links. It includes works as originally written, compositions by members of the ensemble, a commissioned piece, and exciting group improvisations.

In their critcally-acclaimed album “Exodus”, Johannes Fleischmann, Magda Amara and Günter Haumer interpret the music of Korngold and Zeisl. This is the first time that the full programme has been performed live, and it is taking place right here in Vienna.
