PART OF THE MUSICA VIVA CONCERT SERIES
This concert is part of the musica viva concert series – one of the world’s most important forums for contemporary music. This forward-looking concert series presents new orchestral and ensemble works as well as advanced chamber music compositions of experimental character at the highest level.
about the programme
musica viva is celebrating Wolfgang Rihm’s 70th birthday with a week of concerts. Since the 1970s, when he burst upon Germany’s music scene as an enfant terrible, Rihm has embodied the unconditionality of the creative act. It is thus no accident that his 1978 essay on pain and pleasure bore the title Ins eigene Fleisch (“mortifying the flesh”) and dealt with the close bond between mind and body. The same applies to the quintet studies he wrote for composer-clarinettist Jörg Widmann, his former student and perhaps even his soul-mate, who will present them with soloists from the BRSO in Munich’s recital hall.
