World Premiere of “1,2,3” by Moritz Eggert at the Arsenal de Metz

The Ensemble Variances (Ensemble-in-Residence at the Arsenal de Metz) and the Ensemble Resonanz (Hamburg) together with the composer Moritz Eggert (sampler) will present the world premiere of Eggert’s new ensemble work “1,2,3” on 20 February 2014 at the Arsenal de Metz.

In this joint project, the two ensembles are joining forces to participate in a composer portrait concert. For this occasion, Moritz Eggert wrote his new work “1,2,3” for this performance involving both ensembles. The programme will present the composer portrait as well as each ensemble as a sound-body in its own right.

Each of the two ensembles will contribute its sonic identity to the programme: the Ensemble Variances is made up of six wind players, the Ensemble Resonanz of nine string players and a percussionist. This project is intended to open up the possibility of an exchange of perspectives as regards contemporary music. In this concert Eggert’s works “Croatoan II: In the sandbox” for percussion and string quartet, “Aboriginal” for two singing and beating pianists & one piano as well “Millennium Dance” for piano four hands will also be presented.

Further performances will take place on 22 February 2014 in Paris at the Festival Présences and the German premiere will be given on 8 October 2014 in Hamburg (NDR, “das neue werk”).
