Bleiben oder Gehen - Musik aus schweren Zeiten

Start of the salon concerts in Bad Ischl in October 2022 

The multi-year project of the Salon Concerts is part of the Salzkammergut 2024 program line "Power and Tradition" and starts in October with two dates in the post office building in Bad Ischl. In the concerts on October 22 and 28, compositions by mostly forgotten and/or expelled composers will be performed. The search for "forgotten notes" and the reconstruction of fates is always an adventure with an open outcome. These evenings are to be experienced as homages. 

Salon Concert October 22, 2022: Transience - The Eternal Struggle for Recognition

An evening about composers of the first half of the 20th century who stood their ground in their time. The revival of forgotten music and the mediation of forgotten fates, especially from the time of National Socialism, are the focus of this concert. The deputy concertmaster of the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, Marietta Kratz (violin), together with her orchestra colleagues Laura Escanilla (viola) and Valentin Priebus (violoncello), and Henning Lucius (piano), lecturer at the Musikhochschule Lübek and MNT Rostock, will give a voice to the displaced and forgotten composers. The author and project leader Benno Ure moderates.

Salonkonzert 28. Oktober 2022: Neue Welten

Das Vertraute verlassen, das Neue suchen: Die Kultur wandert mit bei der Emigration von KomponistInnen aus aller Welt. Sopran Arabella Fenyves presents together with pianist Alfredo Ovalles and Celloist Ana Topalovic works by Arvo Pärt, Sofia Gubaidulina, Osvaldo Golijov and more in a colorful evening of 20th & 21st century music. And she tells the stories of those who left Estonia, Russia, Argentina, Iran, Venezuela and Germany for political, religious or personal reasons.
