Mark Andre

…selig sind for Clarinet and Electronics

Approximate running time: 1h 30m with one intermission

Mark Andre’s highly spiritual selig sind… (“blessed are”) for clarinet and electronics—its subtitle translates as “Spaces of Disappearance”—was premiered by Jörg Widmann at the 2018 Witten Days for New Chamber Music. This extraordinary piece will come to new life in the unique spatial setting of the Pierre Boulez Saal, paired with a selection from Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber’s equally enigmatic 17th-century “Mystery” Sonatas.
