Composer, singer, bundle of energy and one-off phenomenon – Agata Zubel, winner of this year’s Erste Bank Composition Prize 2018, will perform live on stage. Inspired by Shakespeare, her hard-hitting mono-drama »Cleopatra’s Song« is about one of history’s strongest women. With an instrumentation that includes six fist-sized pebblestones, carefully graded from light to dark, the Klangforum Wien will give the first performance in Vienna of Friedrich Cerha’s most recent work for ensemble, Kurzzeit. The evening will begin with a major world premiere, Wolfram Schurig’s »fünf ostinati das vaterland zu besingen« based on poems by Daniela Danz, in which the 41-year-old writer from Eisenach examines what holds Europe together.
