Opening 47th International Summer Course for New Music

"I wish this music could provide a little inner quiet, space and concentration: An awareness of the fact that we have a great deal of time if we prepared to take it - that it is better to come to oneself than to be beside oneself." –– Karlheinz Stockhausen

 

On 2 August, the 47th Darmstadt International Summer Courses for New Music will open with Karlheinz Stockhausen's legendary composition "Carré"(1959-60) for four orchestras, four choirs, and four conductors, under the artistic direction of Thomas Schäfer. Performers include the Ensemble musikFabrik from Cologne, the hr-Sinfonieorchester (Hessen radio station symphonic orchestra), and the Darmstadt Concert Choir.
