Nah und Fern

  • ArtShare LA 801 East 4th Place Los Angeles, CA, 90013 United States (map)

Music performed by Carillon Quartet with sound projection by David Aguila
Staging created by aLma.MaddR with director Brian Carbine

Nah und Fern is the biggest contribution to the trumpet repertoire that the Carillon Quartet has thus far brought into fruition. The idea is to create a live version of Kagel’s hörspiel in order to introduce it to new audiences. It seems obvious that in the 21st century, radio no longer has the power it once enjoyed in the post-war era. Bringing Nah und Fern into a live context is a way to preserve it and reintroduce it to concertgoers. We present an imaginative, unique staging that gives insight into the many dimensions of Kagel’s fascinating work. With brilliant playback reconstruction by David Aguila, the trumpets of the Carillon Quartet, aLma.MaddR and director Brian Carbine, this piece is now being heard live for the first time since its première in 1994 in the city of Utecht.
