Labyrinth IV - World Premiere - commissioned by the Daniel Barenboim Foundation

for two Vocal Soloists and Ensemble

Europe is struggling—with the forces of a rift between rich and poor, between strange and familiar, between lethargy and engagement. For the first time since the end of the Cold War, our democracies and free societies seem fragile and threatened from the inside and the outside. What can the future bring?
Together with the Pierre Boulez Saal, the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB) celebrates its 50th anniversary with an event that will explore the question of Europe—the question of what it can and what it must be. Centered around the world premiere of a new piece by Jörg Widmann, performed by Daniel Barenboim and the Boulez Ensemble, the program will also include non-musical contributions. Full details will be announced soon.
