Johannes Hiemetsberger conductor
Nina Polaschegg presentation

Arnold SCHÖNBERG Dreimal tausend Jahre op. 50A
Lukas HASELBÖCK Geschirmt sind die Liebenden. Four Psalms after Nelly Sachs and Arnold Schönberg for eight voices (WP)
Julia PURGINA Blutige Sonette after texts by Pavol Országh Hviezdoslav (WP)
Šimon VOSEČEK Wie die Lawinenmasse. Work for ensemble after texts by Friederike Kempner (WP)

Free admission | Registration required

The longing for love and soul friendship between people is the focus of this concert. Schönberg’s “Dreimal tausend Jahre,” Lukas Haselböck’s “Vier Psalmen” (after Nelly Sachs’ “Sternverdunkelung”) as well as new works by Julia Purgina and Šimon Voseček complement each other to an expressive variety, which is fanned out in the instrumentation of the eight-part vocal ensemble from intensive tutti sound to soloistic isolation.
