Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Le ceneri di Gramsci (Gramsci’s Ashes), is the starting point of Manfred Trojahn’s latest work for baritone and ensemble. Pasolini’s text seems, says Trojahn, “to be a burning necessity to me now. For we, like Pasolini at that time, have chosen art and not socially useful work.” A visit to Antonio Gramsci’s grave in Rome, the guiding intellectual force of the Italian Communists, became the starting point for a contemplation of ideology and passion. Dietrich Henschel and the Ensemble musikFabrik, conducted by Peter Rundel, give the first performance of the monodrama on 13 December 2013 in Rome at the “Nuova consonanza” Festival. The Austrian premiere takes place on 18 December in the Konzerthaus in Vienna.
The 300th anniversary of Gluck’s birth, born on 2 July 1714 in Erasbach near Nuremberg, is being marked in many places this season. This started on 3 November 2013 in the Bayer Kulturhaus Leverkusen with a concert performance of Gluck’s La clemenza di Tito with L’Arte del mondo conducted by Werner Ehrhardt, followed on 10 November by Frankfurt Opera with its first performance of the Prague version of Ezio (Vincent Boussard / Christian Curnyn). On 8 February 2014 the first performance of Atto d'Orfeo, the Parma version of Orfeo ed Euridice, will be given at Göteborg Opera. Laurence Cummings conducts using pre-publication material from the Gluck Complete Works, specially prepared for this performance by Gabriele Buschmeier. The director is David Radok.
