Monte Verità – the “mountain of truth“ …

When I designed the program, I never thought that reality would catch up with my conceptual question of whether and how the setting of concerts can influence the consciousness of a society – in such a drastic way.

Not only the enforced silence, which is celebrated in Cage’s prophetic piece „4’33“ and which now transformed into a prescribed “extended version”, but also the positions of humanity, anti-militarism, individual and social awareness in the selected works should be supported by this setting with regard to program sequence, spatialization of the music and breaking up of the stage-audience order-can be traced.

Music by Clara Iannotta; Sarah Nemtsov, Hayden Chisholm, Luigi Nono, Laurie Schwartz, Luciano Berio, Krzysztof Penderecki, Frederick Rzewsky, David Lang, Gerhard Stäbler, Antonis Anissegos, Giacinto Scelsi, Phill Niblock & others to be performed …
We will have to ask updated questions again in February when the pieces will be newly set.
