First Complete Performance

Hans Zender’s Cycle ›Hölderlin lesen‹

In September, the first complete performance of Hans Zender’s cycle ›Hölderlin lesen‹ takes place as part of ›Hölderlin 2020 – Echoes in Contemporary Arts‹, an initiative of the Culture Fund Frankfurt Rhine Main, at the Alte Oper Frankfurt. The performers are former and current students of the International Ensemble Modern Academy and members of Ensemble Modern, who are joined by the soprano Salome Kammer and accordionist Teodoro Anzellotti, who rehearsed the works together with Hans Zender from 2018 until his death during preparations in October 2019. Therefore, the project is dedicated with profound gratitude to the memory of Hans Zender, who was a pioneer, friend and supporter to Ensemble Modern.
