“Buenos Aires” - New Work by Jan Müller-Wieland

The Bavarian youth ensemble for New Music JU[MB]LE was founded in Munich in 2015 and aims to enthuse and inspire especially gifted young up-and-coming Bavarian musicians for New Music, bringing them into contact with high-ranking teachers, composers and soloists in rehearsal phases with whom they then prepare concert programmes. The JU[MB]LE Project 2016 is focussing on vocal music, featuring the renowned singer Salome Kammer.

Salome Kammer and the youth ensemble JU[MB]LE will be presenting the world premiere of the new work by composer Jan Müller-Wieland entitled “Buenos Aires” for voice and twelve instrumentalists on 11 June 2016 at the Gasteig in Munich, under the direction of Johannes X. Schachtner. “Buenos Aires” was commissioned by the Foundation Tonkünstler München e.V. (Musicians’ Association of Munich), promoted by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.

Jan Müller-Wieland has supplied the following comments on “Buenos Aires”:
“BUENOS AIRES is good air, utopia, wishful thinking, a loving reality as far as life and its possible meaning are concerned. I have woven into each other, turned around and adjusted early God texts by Rilke from his period in Berlin Schmargendorf.
But: instead of God, the word ‘tango’. Instead of God, the remote city. Instead of genitive, imperative. Instead of a picture in a picture, a picture - a gesture, a ‘monologino’, a scene.
Berio’s Folk Songs formed an inner invocation, a wakening call for the approximately 10-minute piece. It may be played lightly. It should be easily playable. Play and immediately (!) feel and interpret. The tempo is always there in order to be immediately abandoned, to let go, to feel togetherness. No fear of counting and counting errors, or of the aesthetic patriarchy. No. Everything frank and free. A good mood. In love. In good air. Against worry.”
