This edition of Ars Musica opens with a meditative concert around the perception of time. The first piece, Chahut, was commissioned by Ars Musica from Claire-Mélanie Sinnhuber, a Franco-Swiss composer, whose music is characterised by its scaled-down sound, with a predilection for transparent and chiselled textures. The second piece, Sreaming Arhythmia, by Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir, goes so far as to provoke in the listener a sense of temporal disorientation.
This opening concert ends with the unique vision of Morton Feldman, as expressed in one of his most illuminating works, Rothko Chapel.
