FLUCHT.PUNKT – Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik 2023

Blote Vogel School, Assembly Hall, Witten

An axiom is a point behind which one cannot go back. From there, the trio Dell-Lillinger-Westergaard takes flight only forward - in an eagerly awaited encounter with a quartet of the Klangforum Wien. Bastien David, in his string quartet composition "B i r d", sees in the encounter with wild nature a Fluchtpunkt for the liberation of human dispositions. How can two existences, alien to each other, meet without interfering with each other? Márton Illés understands the string space of Quatuor Diotima as a possibility space for the unfolding of energetic perspectives.
