Category Concert, Tickets


Günter Bialas (1907–1995): Quartett Nr. 4, Assonanzen (22’)
Franz Schubert (1797–1828): Streichquartett Nr. 13 a-Moll D 804 op. 29, Rosamunde

The Auryn Quartet enjoys a prominent position on any list of the significant chamber music ensembles of the 20th and 21st centuries. No one doubts that, since their founding in 1981, the four gentlemen – Andreas Arndt (cello), Stewart Eaton (viola) and the violinists Matthias Lingenfelder and Jens Oppermann – have set high standards for the art of the string quartet. Shortly before the planned disbanding of their ensemble, they close the circle by returning to Hitzacker, where their chamber music career picked up speed in the 1980s. The program they have chosen fits well; Günter Bialas’ “Assonanzen” quartet (1986) makes reference to Joseph von Eichendorff and is a suitable match to Schubert’s rendering of Helmina von Chézy’s romantic drama “Rosamunde”.

Electroacoustic music

An exciting experiment: Composer Clemens von Reusner invents an electroacoustic work that interacts with Franz Schubert’s famous B-flat Major piano sonata. The work called KRENE (Greek: source, well) is commissioned by the Festival, the concert will be a world premier. The original piano part is played by Nicolas Namoradze, himself a talented composer. He was born in the USA, grew up in Hungary and studied with Emanuel Ax at the Juilliard School in New York. Namoradze has been chosen by Sir András Schiff to participate in his “Building Bridges” project.
