Five commissioned compositions by composers from four different countries living in Bremen. The Ensemble New Babylon and the projektgruppe neue musik bremen e.V. decided to award the commissions without thematic specifications, thus countering the steady increase in curated concerts. The risk is big, the results are open and the pieces therefore bear no titles. All that is certain is that the Bremen wind orchestra Lauter Blech and the contrabassist Reinhart Hammerschmidt will participate alongside the Ensemble New Babylon – a line-up the size of a chamber orchestra, conducted by René Gulikers, allowing the composers a great deal of freedom.
With works by Heiko Müller (*1955), Christoph Ogiermann (*1967), Anton Wassiljew (*1984), Christian Pedro Vásquez Miranda (*1969) and Andreas Paparousos (*1975)
A cooperation of Ensemble New Babylon with the pgnm – projektgruppe neue musik bremen e.V. and der Schwankhalle Bremen.
Supported by the Karin and Uwe Hollweg Foundation, klangpol – Netzwerk Neue Musik Nordwest, the Senator for Cultural Affairs Bremen, the Reidemeister & Ulrichs Foundation and the Waldemar Koch Foundation.
The composition commissions to Christoph Ogiermann and Anton Wassiljew were financed by the Ernst von Siemens Foundation.
