Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf’s “void – un delitto italiano” receives American Premiere

The vocal ensemble “Ekmeles” will present the American premiere of Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf’s work “void – un delitto italiano” for choir a capella in New York on 22 April 2013. The conductor is Jeff Gavett. The title refers to Mahnkopf’s “void – cycle” comprising ten works which will flow into the music theatre “void – Archaeology of a Loss.” The subtitle “un delitto italiano” is intended to point out, in addition, that the film director Pier Paolo Pasolini, bestially murdered in 1975, stands for the culture of Italy of the post-war period to an extent hardly equalled by anyone else.

The work received it`s world premiere in the beginning of 2010 by the New Vocal Soloists Stuttgart and was part of the festival ECLAT.
