„Gestade in Fernen“

Music for the day of the liberation of Auschwitz on January 27th

In its program “Gestade in Fernen”, the ensemble reflection K deals with human suffering in its most diverse manifestations and forms.
The musicians present works by Brigitta Muntendorf, Gerald Eckert, Johannes Kalitzke and Dieter Schnebel, which were created between 1988 and 2016, in different spatial configurations in the Eckernfoerder St. Nicolai church and the Zionschurch Bielefeld-Bethel. They all deal with the theme of war, death and pain, but also with the human misconduct that triggered this. The underlying text fragments come from such high-ranking authors as Heinrich Böll, Paul Celan, Raoul Schrott and from the Stabat Mater Dolorosa (13th century).
In contrast, the ensemble presents various short antiphons by the abbess Hildegard von Bingen from the years 1150 to 1160, sung by the soprano Irene Kurka, who, with her life-affirming character singing about the "miracle of creation", present themselves as a strong contrast, but also as a connection to the works from the 20th and 21st centuries.

St. Nicolai church Eckernfoerde


A "short ride through the avant-gardes of music history" from Machaut via Monteverdi, Beethoven, Liszt, Dvorak, Satie and Webern to a world premiere by Gerald Eckert.

The title of the program alludes to Robert Schumann's article "Neue Bahnen" in the "Neue Musikzeitung", which praised the young Johannes Brahms as the composer of the future. And so this program not only deals with the music of the present time, but also presents avant-gardists from 700 years of music history, beginning with a motet by the French Guillaume de Machaut, of whom not only the oldest mass setting has survived, but also the fundamental ones established rules of counterpoint and melody that still apply today.
It will also be heard how Carlo Gesualdo, Franz Liszt or Ludwig van Beethoven broke the harmonic habits of their time, how Claudio Monteverdi, Carl Philip Emanuel Bach or John Cage invented new forms of composition, or how Antonin Dvorak, Eric Satie or Anton Webern made traditional forms create something new.
