Linien – Kreise – Figuren

concert
Tuesday, May 24, 2016 - 19:30

Ensemble Wiener Collage
Johannes Marian, Klavier
Alfred Melichar, Akkordeon
Stefan Neubauer, Klarinette

Alban BERG - Vier Stücke für Klarinette und Klavier op. 5
Henri POUSSEUR - Variations »dicté par…« Anton Webern
SHIH - Ein Takt (Stygische Elegie)
Gerald - RESCH Figuren
Herbert LAUERMANN - Trio (UA)

Mayako KUBO - Geras Variationen
Charris EFTHIMIOU - Andato al Commando
René STAAR - 5mal5 kurze Intermezzi op. 22j Nr. 1– 5

The three musicians are among the regular members of the Ensemble
Wiener Collage, with which they have been playing in various lineups and
combinations for about 25 years. But since there is no original literature
for the unusual instrumentation of accordion, clarinet and piano, Herbert
Lauermann (himself a member of the Ensemble Wiener Collage Society’s
board for many years) composed a trio especially for this concert. The
program also features a solo work for each instrumentalist and various
duo combinations.

Tickets: 14 Euro
