Ruzicka Portrait at the Concert Series “Musik am 13.” in Stuttgart

There will be a portrait concert on 13 July 2016 during the course of the concert series “Musik am 13.” (Music on the 13th) at the Stadtkirche Bad Cannstatt in Stuttgart for the composer, conductor and general music director Peter Ruzicka, who was born in 1948 and will celebrate his 68th birthday on 3 July 2016.

In the concert Ruzicka’s string quartet No. 2 “...FRAGMENT...” (five epigrams), parts from “GESTALT UND ABBRUCH” (seven fragments) for voices, “TOMBEAU” for flute and string quartet, “...UND MÖCHTET IHR AN MICH DIE HÄNDE LEGEN” (five fragments by Hölderlin) for baritone and piano as well the hommage for chamber ensemble “JE WEITER ICH KOMME, UMSO MEHR FINDE ICH MICH UNFÄHIG, DIE IDEE WIEDERZUGEBEN” will be performed. The performers are Reiner Holthaus (baritone), Thomas von Lüdinghausen (flute), Dirk Altmann (clarinet), Sabrina von Lüdinghausen (harp), Doriana Tchakarova (piano) and the Lotus String Quartet. Björn Gottstein will be the moderator of this portrait concert.

The organisers have announced the concert as follows:

“Peter Ruzicka is one of the most important composers of our time, and has intensively confronted the questions of the ‘why and how’ of composing today. His contact with the history of music forms a central category in his artistic work. His compositions search for the surfaces of friction with other works, using these as a compositional impulse.”
