ONLY CONNECT FESTIVAL OF SOUND 2015:
Oslo Sinfonietta open rehearsal
Helmut Lachenmann Q&A
SATURDAY 6 JUNE
KL. 16:00 (doors opens 15:45 and closes 16:00)
An exclusive chance to view an open rehearsal for two Lachenmann pieces with the Norwegian Grammy award winning Oslo Sinfonietta, as well as to hear one of the great composers of the modern era, Helmut Lachenmann, in conversation with conductor and composer Christian Eggen.
German composer Helmut Lachenmann is a senior figure of musical modernism. He has referred to his music as ‘musique concrète instrumentale’, implying a musical language that creates otherworldly, electronic-sounding effects purely through unconventional acoustic playing techniques.
Oslo Sinfonietta is Norway’s longest running contemporary music ensemble, comprised of leading solo musicians and members of some of Norway’s most prominent orchestras. The ensemble’s artistic director and chief conductor is Christian Eggen.
