The Big Concert Night

SUN September 6, 2015, 8 PM - 12 PM, PostCity, Train Hall
Admittance from 7:40 PM

The traces that experiencing and thinking about cities have left behind in music is one of the narrative threads in the Big Concert Night. This year´s auditorium is POST CITY´s Train Hall, which comes out of retirement for a one-night stand. The Bruckner Orchester Linz under its conductor of many years Dennis Russell Davies (US) will interpret Music for a Great City by Aaron Copland.

Everyday life in the city of the future that´s become so quiet that the urban soundscape has to be artificially (and artistically) designed is sketched by Wolfgang Dorninger (AT) in POST CITY–An Aural Fiction. On the basis of a concept by Wolfgang C. Kuthan (FR/AT) and with visual support from Herwig Bachmann, (AT) guitarist Karl Ritter (AT) will perform Soundfalls, a high-energy sound painting with guitar feedback.

Once again, the Big Concert Night pays respects to composer Philip Glass in the form of selected piano etudes performed by Maki Namekawa (JP/AT) to a real-time visualization by Cori O´Ian (AT). Also on the lineup are Dennis Russell Davies (US) and the Bruckner Orchester Linz with Ge Xu–Antiphony (Chen Yi) and Symphony in G#-Minor (Elliot Goldenthal), Peter Karrer with Selbsttonfilm, the Diaspora Maschine by Peter Androsch (AT) and Anatol Bogendorfer (AT), and trombonist Bertl Mütter (AT) with an alfresco intervention.
