Second concert:
The second concert for Women Composers’ Day offers a selection of works by Rebecca Saunders (London, 1967). The British composer has written most of her catalogue in direct collaboration with Ensemble Musikfabrik and its soloists; a work context that allowed Saunders to get the most out of the instrumental potential of her works. Saunders’ music is often bordering on silence: murmurs, movements, traces…

Program

Many of the titles of her works reflect a fixation with small events on the verge of extinction. The way in which the instruments interact with each other in some of the pieces also transcends the idea of an instrumental group to respond to diverse organisational concepts, whether they are architectural, poetic, pictorial, literary, philosophical or purely sonorous; Saunders creates collages of independent parts and timelines of events in which the coordination of the elements depends on subjective listening by the various instrumentalists that the composer controls with non-traditional parameters.
