On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the composer-performer ensemble Polwechsel presents itself on two evenings with current compositions by its four members Burkhard Beins, Martin Brandlmayr, Werner Dafeldecker and Michael Moser.
A piece written especially for the ensemble by Peter Ablinger and with guest musicians Andrea Neumann, Magda Mayas and John Butcher, with whom they have been working together for many years.
“This celebration of the group’s 30th anniversary is composed entirely of recent works, but each will move around in time as well as in form, in ways that belong to traditions of both improvised and composed music, but also in ways that belong distinctively to this group. It demonstrates breadth and depth that suggest great temporal reach, embracing musical values that touch the art’s ritual origins and offering a sense of ongoing relevance and renewal. True to the group’s spirit, this anniversary project is not a retrospective but a probe into an array of fresh possibilities.” — Stuart Broomer
All of the pieces to be performed can also be heard on the current Polwechsel release Embrace (Ni Vu Ni Connu, 4LP-Box 2023).
