The 32nd festival “Zeit für Neue Musik” (Time for New Music) under the direction of Prof. Helmut Bieler (†) and Dr. Wolfram Graf will take place from 22 to 30 March 2019 in Bayreuth. While the festival opens in Haus Wahnfried, the following 5 concerts take place in the “Kammermusiksaal” (chamber music hall) of the Steingraeber Haus.
It is about the encounter of the past and the present: the exploration of the sources of new music, the contrast between the modern and the old front. On Saturday, March 23, the great piano night takes place. From 7.30 pm there will be three concerts with three hours of pure variety. An overall view of the past hundred years based on outstanding examples. In short: an evening for piano enthusiasts! The spectrum ranges from the highly virtuoso Russian School and the drama of Viktor Ullmann’s melodrama from the Theresienstadt KZ to the Impressionist Mompou and then the epitome of classical modernism, Hans Werner Henze. It is a fantastic evening of the Festival “Zeit für Neue Musik” which is designed by four artists.
The festival program and further information are available in the event calendar. Tickets are available from 5 Euro at the Klavierhaus Steingraeber, Friedrichstraße 2, 95444 Bayreuth | Tel. 0921-64049.
