    Amidst total darkness, surrounded by a string quartet

    Georg Friedrich Haas (*1953)  •  In iij. Noct. – String Quartet No. 3 [2001]

     

    The Kairos Quartet gave the world premiere of In iij. Noct. at the Klangspuren 2002 and championed this remarkable work ever since, resulting in 20 more performances throughout Europe and in Mexico.

    Two of them also coached student string quartets for performances at the Hochschule Lucerne; three of Haas' string quartets including In iij. Noct. were performed at the Weingarten Days of New Music 2006.

     

     

     

    In iij. Noct. is performed in Hanover for the first time. It needs the complete absence of light while the string quartet is positionened in the four corners around the audience playing 45 – 60 minutes from memory. It also needs a very quiet and supporting audience, and it needs a hall with acoustical properties that make it possible to always tell from which corner a sound travelled.

    THE BLOCK

    Paintings, Video Art and Music Performance – Concept by Andrea Conrad
    Paintings – Gunnar Conrad
    Musical Concept and Performance – Claudius von Wrochem

    Since 2013 THE BLOCK confronts Kollwitz’ emotions and nightmares which – placed at the crossroads of two world wars – speak to us in surreal imagery of her artistic development up to her larger–than–life sculpture "Trauerndes Elternpaar" (Grieving Parents) which is located in Vladslo / Belgium. In 1914 Kollwitz' son parted from her for the Belgian front to die a little later in Flanders.

    THE BLOCK
    consists of nine cycles, each starting from her diaries ... and including workshops with teenagers from the State of Brandenburg.
    This performance at the Käthe-Kollwitz-Museum Berlin is the 4th cycle in preparation of a staged multimedia performance to come.
Andrea Conrad works at places steeped in German and European history. She curates the European project PHYSIS for interdisciplinary art, process oriented and conceptual work in Greece and Italy.

    Workshop mit dem Kairos Quartett

      »Cosmic staircase«
    In Verbindung mit dem Eröffnungsprogramm veranstalten die Musiktage in Zusammenarbeit mit den Soester Schulen einen Workshop für jugendliche Schülerinnen und Schüler. Der Workshop unter dem Titel »Cosmic staircase« verwendet Zeit in ähnlicher Weise wie John Cages »Thirty Pieces«, die Idee basiert aber auf Cages Orchesterwerk »Atlas eclipticalis«. Es wurde vom Cellisten des Kairos Quartetts entwickelt und wird von den Musikern des Kairos Quartetts gemeinsam mit den Schülern erarbeitet. Eine interne abschließende Aufführung ist im Treppenhaus des Aldegrever-Gymnasiums geplant.
