Konzerthausorchester Berlin will present new pieces by composers from Uruguay, Italy, Spain and Germany. levante.repique by Alvaro Carlevaro forms part of the levante cycle, in which the genuine features and characteristics of the Afro-Uruguayan drum “repique“ are integrated into the sound and spatial effect of the orchestra. It functions as a release of musical activity, from the tiniest rhythmical pattern to macro-structural and morphological aspects.

In Fantasia, Stefano Gervasoni creates a series of heterogeneous situations by incorporating quotations from own and other works, with the ultimate aim, however, to unite them in one homogenous cosmos. Irrene Stimmen, also for piano and orchestra, is a struggle to capture “inner” and “erring” voices and develops a sonic psychogramme between the solo instrument, the cimbalom, Trinidad drums and the orchestra.

Enno Poppe’s Keilschrift (Cuneiform Writing) displays the composer’s predilection for things unadorned and concise. The initial structure, a simple five-tone motive, is varied, modified and multiplied until a dense heterophony of orchestral timbres is achieved.

Antar Atman is one of a series of highly complex orchestral pieces by Spanish composer Francisco Guerrero that reflect his thorough exploration of physical and mathematical principles.
