Lecture: New Music – What is it?

Guests are very welcome

The contours of this thing called »New Music« are hardly clear. 110 years ago in Vienna, some of its critics discovered »the wild sounds of democrats« in it – and that was not intended as a compliment! Decades later, current sounds were caricatured as a mediocre »Huuurz!«, while others found them to be aesthetic seismographs of the social status quo. In his lecture, Stefan Fricke, music journalist with the Hessischer Rundfunk, will wander down several of these paths through the dense forest of phenomena and opinions. The event is part of the series ›Open Ears‹ of the Friends of Ensemble Modern e.V. Admission is free, guests are very welcome.
