MY MUSIC #74: RHR+ Roman Haubenstock - Ramati and his times

2019-09-22 ( Sun )
CK Zamek (ZAMEK Culture Centre in Poznań), ul. Święty Marcin 80/82, Poznań

The year 2019  marks the centennial of birth of Roman Haubenstock-Ramati, an outstanding composer from Krakow, who in the first stage of his career remained associated with his native city and Lviv, later working in such centres of art as Tel Aviv and Vienna. Haubenstock-Ramati's contribution to the new language of music, an avant-garde yet formally disciplined one, puts him on a par with artists of international renown, such as Cage, Stockhausen, Crumb, Ligeti, or Xenakis. The project involves three musicians, two of whom-Kazimierz Pyzik and Piotr Kania-have been associated with MW2 and the RHR festival in Krakow, as well as two women artists-Blanka Dembosz, a singer performing contemporary music in Poland and abroad, as well as Austrian clarinettist Teresa Doblinger, who has played Haubenstock-Ramati's music for many years now. On the centennial of his birth, the artists wish to revisit the work of the composer, and show his oeuvre in the context of works of his contemporaries, including George Crumb and Bogusław Schaeffer.
