(8.7.2015) ?ubica ?ekovská has created a fleeting, multi-faceted structure of sound for the Essen Philharmonic. Palingenia, the mayfly, is the symbol for a new composition for large orchestra by the Slovak composer, inspired by a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen: “I have thousands of moments when I am cheerful and happy,” is how the insect in Andersen’s tale justifies his short, but intense existence. Tomáš Netopil opens the concert season at the Essen Philharmonie with the premiere of the work on 10 September 2015. – (photo: Ivana Satanik)
(29.6.2015) With numerous compositions and a premiere, Thomas Daniel Schlee’s works feature at the Musiktage Mondsee (Austria) festival from 28 August to 5 September 2015. The Auryn Quartet premieres his Fourth String Quartet op. 86 on 3 September in Schloss Mondsee as part of a composer portrait. This impressive one-movement work allows a sequence of contrasting sections to develop from a largo, and culminates in a long solo for viola – an open conclusion which hangs in the air like a question. – (photo: Herbert Lehmann, Vienna)
