Rückspiegel – Seven Works from Seven Decades: MUNDRY

Isabel Mundry: Traces des moments (2000)
(2 Performances + Lecture in English)

Tutors of the Darmstadt Summer Course
Ulrich Mosch (Lecture)

The "Rückspiegel" [Retrospective] project will present seven works from seven decades of the Darmstadt International Summer Course for New Music with sounds and words. The decisive factor in the selection was not so much the historical significance of the individual works as the question of how far each of them can stand for the discussions going on at the time of its creation, both in Darmstadt and elsewhere.


As music is a temporal object, the relationship between the past and the present is thematized in every composition, at least indirectly. In Traces des moments, Isabel Mundry makes the process of perception itself the focus of her compositional explorations. For her, the question is not simply how the individual moment can be captured, but also what traces something which has just passed leaves behind in the present.



The works:
31 July 2016 Stefan Prins: Piano Hero
1 August 2016 Brian Ferneyhough: String Quartet No. 3
2 August 2016 John Cage: Concert for Piano and Orchestra
