Schubert | Schwitters | Strawinsky u.a.
What a performance! Four house technicians drag four large, heavy wooden boxes onto the stage, carefully unpack and open them... and – surprise! – “out of the box” climb Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Reto Bieri, Annekatrin Klein, and Anthony Romaniuk. With the violin, the clarinet, and various keyboard instruments, they explore the most diverse musical constellations, oscillating between sense and nonsense – in the process provoking deep insights or revealing surprising connections. All of this happens to great music by composers from Franz Schubert and Giuseppe Verdi to Galina Ustvolskaya, Iannis Xenakis, and Alvin Lucier. Also on the program is the famous Ursonate, the legendary sound poem by the Dada poet Kurt Schwitters: it will be presented as a film recording with the four artists. At the end, they will be packed up again and transported away in their crates. A staged concert that stands out from the ordinary – aiming to enchant us all, the nurse as well as the sales manager.
