Concert: Piano-Duo GrauSchumacher

On 21 May, the piano duo will take the audience at the Orangerie Herrenhausen on a musical journey from the early modernism of Claude Debussy to the present day, with the first performance of a new work by Brigitta Muntendorf.

"Key of Will" is the new part of Muntendorf's "Trilogie für zwei Flügel", commissioned by the KunstFestSpiele. It is being premiered as part of the first complete performance of this trilogy. Muntendorf's energetic and directly physical music breaks the bounds of the purely pianistic with its live electronics. In a kind of musical table talk between the two pianists, ideas of past and present are linked to the will to self-determination and the expectation of future action.

Bernd Alois Zimmermann operates in the same area by bringing the musical past into the present. Zimmermann's "Perspektiven" from 1955/56, could supply the title for the whole concert. Claude Debussy’s works also examine the presence of the past, as in old manuscripts, the "Six Épigraphes antiques", or dedications to deceased friends in "En blanc et noir". The concert ends with Zimmermann's "Monologe", from 1964, which compositionally summarises all these aspects and is described in its subtitle as a ‘Homage an Claude Debussy’.
