Premiere of Winther Christensen piece

Tonight a new piece by Christian Winther Christensen: Hymns & Spectral Songs will be premiered by the Berlin based ensemble mosaik.

The piece will be performed as a part of the concept Kommentierte Musik (Commented Music) where the ensemble explores new concert formats and experiments with the staging of music. 

Selected works are brought into an overall concept, where artists from other art forms contribute to the piece with their own perspectives on its theme, form or some other aspect.

At this concert the theatre director Thomas Fiedler and actor Albrecht Hirche will comment on the compositions by Christian Winther Christensen and four other composers through text and staging.

The actors will enter a cross art-form dialogue with the musicians of ensemble mosaik and thus uncover new perspectives on music as well as theatre.
