Virus der Humanität

Concert and talk with Georg Friedrich Haas

The works of Georg Friedrich Haas could hardly be more personal and existential. On this evening, he himself will be present; in addition to his impulse lecture "I want to spread the virus of humanity," chamber music works by him will be performed. The funeral song I can't breathe from 2015, composed in memory of the death of the African-American Eric Garner while being forcibly handcuffed by police officers, as well as the sextet tria ex uno, premiered in Munich in 2002, which refers to the Renaissance composer Josquin Desprez. An evening about the indispensable necessity of artistic creation in our present.
