Newsletter Ensemble Megaphon, August 2019

Which an age of prudence can never retract
By this, and this only, we have existed
Which is not to be found in our obituaries

In our empty rooms
(from: "The waste Land" T. S. Eliot)

Dear friends of our ensemble,

After the summer break we start refreshed into an eventful autumn! We start with a joint project with members of the Ensemble Reflection K. Here we examine spatial relationships in an exploration of works by contemporary composer Gerald Eckert, among others.

"Empty Rooms"was written as the first part of a cycle of works that Eckert composed after the death of his friend, the pianist and conductor James Avery. In the field of tension between imagined spatial poetries and acoustic sound vaults, we will be showing these and other compositions by Snezana Nesic, Luigi Nono and Helena Tulve on 6 September at Kunstraum Tosterglope. On 7 September, we will be guests at the Sprengel Museum within the framework of the Music 21 Festival, dhe year uThe conference entitled "Totalitarianism" will take place in Hanover from 5 to 8 September.

On 20 September we will then contribute to a musically inspired reading with lyrical texts by the Hanoverian poet Birgit Kreipe and the Berlin poets Steffen Popp and Georg Leß at the Theatre Museum. So please feel free to join us there "Through the reeds, too, of course".
