WANDELWEISER UND SO WEITER

DONNERSTAG, 21. FEBRUAR – SAMSTAG, 23. FEBRUAR 2013

Wandelweiser ist ein Komponisten- und Interpretenkollektiv, das anfangs der
1990er Jahre kurz nach der Wende in Berlin gegründet wurde. Anfänglich ein
Ensemble, das in seiner Kernformation regelmässig in Europa, Nordamerika und
Japan konzertiert hat, steht der Begriff heute für eine Bewegung, die in
mehreren Städten in Europa und Nordamerika Orte und Nischen gefunden hat,
um eine Musik der Stille, der Konzentration und Kontemplation aufzuführen.
Wandelweiser ist ein weitverzweigter Ort der Inspiration und der ästhetischen
Diskussion. Erst kürzlich hat das englische Label anothertimbre eine 6 CD Box
wandelweiser und so weiter veröffentlicht, eine Programmidee, von der auch
diese vier Konzerte bei moments musicaux inspiriert sind.
