Awakening After a Musical Zero Hour, the Kölner Konzert

  • Wild Beast 24700 McBean Parkway Santa Clarita, CA, 91355 United States (map)

The title of this recital is shamelessly stolen from a chapter in Michael Kurtz's Stockhausen Biography. The recital is a celebration of the Köln based composers that revived music after the void of World War II. It is also a celebration of the return of melody to the serial movement in spectacular fashion (in the case of Stockhausen). 

The works featured will be the following:

K. Stockhausen: ARIES (1977/80) (the awakening)
K. Stockhausen: MICHAELS RUF (the internalization) 
M. Kagel: Nah und Fern (city landscapes) *live version created by the Carillon Quaret
K. Stockhausen: MICHAELS ABSCHIED (the lasting influence)


Nicolás Bejarano
Carillon Quartet (with special guests Dan Flores & Patrick Hoff)
Amy Golden: Laptop/Reconstruction of Nah und Fern
