One hall, two evenings, and up to thirteen percussionists – that is the setup for the first edition of the new ‘Winter Music’ festival series at the Akademie der Künste, curated by Manos Tsangaris and Enno Poppe. Two extensive concerts on 7 and 8 December present works by current members of the Akademie der Künste’s Music Section, including Carola Bauckholt, Vinko Globokar, Nicolaus A. Huber, Younghi Pagh-Paan, Enno Poppe, Rebecca Saunders, Dieter Schnebel, Mathias Spahlinger and Manos Tsangaris.
The Schlagquartett Köln (Thomas Meixner, Boris Müller, Dirk Rothbrust and Achim Seyler), known for its love of experimentation and its innovative performance techniques, are performing on both evenings together with Johannes Fischer and the percussion class at the Musikhochschule Lübeck.
