Lend an ear...

The thinking ear is always curious

The thinking ear is always curious. That is why the Pierre Boulez Saal is open to the entire world of chamber music. We are interested in the programming and initiatives of other venues and festivals in Berlin and beyond, which we are featuring in this section at irregular intervals.


MaerzMusik 2019: “Masaot/Clocks without Hands” by Olga Neuwirth

As a source of countless sound combinations and spatial constellations, orchestras were and still are an important provider of impulses for the music of the 20th and 21st century. This high-energy machinery can be experienced at MaerzMusik – Festival for Time Issues: “Masaot/Clocks without Hands” a poetic reflection on the nature of time by Olga Neuwirth, “Bound to the Bow” for orchestra and electronica by Ashley Fure, and the world premiere of “Was there a Swan” by Justė Janulytė.

These compositions will be performed by Konzerthausorchester Berlin, conducted by Peter Rundel on Thursday, 28 March 19 at 8pm at Konzerthaus Berlin.
