A production by the mdw – the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna – in collaboration with MuTh

An evening of contrasts, ranging from Sofia Gubaidulina’s latest string quartet to date – a work for the classical string arrangement with electronic sounds – all the way back to early music. Henry Purcell’s wonderful Fantasias, originally composed for viol consort, are now heard in a string quartet setting. Carlo Gesualdo’s madrigals, which have not been performed in recent times, explore the very limits of harmony. Instead of the five voices used in the original, five clarinettists will breathe fresh life into these pieces. These pieces, which express the full potential of sound and harmony, will be followed by premiere performances of works by young composers from the mdw – a natural progression.
