Happy New Ears

in 2019/20 Season

Since 1993 Ensemble Modern and the Frankfurt Opera have collaborated on the workshop concerts »Happy New Ears«, whose title goes back to a New Year’s greeting by John Cage. Presenting excerpts from the compositions as well as explanations, remarks and background information in the form of conversations with the composer, conductor or Ensemble member being portrayed, these concerts offer a new, in-depth approach to musical works. In 2019/20 the series will be presented for the first time as a cooperation between Ensemble Modern, the Frankfurt am Main Academy of Music and Performing Arts and the Frankfurt Opera.
