Watch This Space | Stefanie Irányi
Unfortunately Anna Lucia Richter had to cancel the concert due to illness. We are very happy that Stefanie Iranyi can step in at short notice. There will be the following programme change: Instead of the Suite Paysanne Hongroise by Bartók, L’aube enchantée sur le Raga “Todi” for flute and harp by Ravi Shankar will be played.
Information about the programme
Unusual duo formats resound in the Werksviertel Complex: a work by Ravi Shankar for flute and harp, Beethoven’s tongue-in-cheek Duet for Two Obligato Eyeglasses (i.e. viola and cello), Scelsi’s microtonal Ko-Lho for flute and clarinet (1966) and Lauro’s Venezuelan waltz Natalia for marimba. Then the instruments from the duos join forces in a small multi-hued ensemble to accompany the mezzo-soprano Stefanie Iranyi. They will perform Luciano Berio’s Folk Songs, a gathering of songs from Armenia, France, Azerbaijan, Italy (Sardinia and Sicily) and the USA that this Italian composer, much like Bartók, united into a cycle in a plea for international understanding.
