Anniversary 25 Years Ensemble Wiener Collage
Ensemble Wiener Collage, Austria
The Ensemble Wiener Collage is made up, on the one hand, of members from the Vienna Philharmonic and outstanding freelance musicians on the New Music scene, on the other. It is dedicated to the performance of contemporary music across its entire spectrum and at the highest level. Characteristic of the sound of the Ensemble Wiener Collage is the shared basis of Vienna’s typical tonal culture that is enriched by diverse excursions into all fields of the contemporary modern age.
To mark its 25th anniversary the ensemble’s varied repertoire – ranging from works of the 2nd Vienna School through to contemporary living composers of the older and younger generation – is to be presented in numerous events, concerts, documentations and on different sound media in and outside of Austria. Here new works are to be commissioned. In the anniversary season supported by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation a music theater cycle is to be launched that will run from 2012 to 2016. The cycle will be realized in collaboration with the society “OperaRecycling-Wien” with the support of both the Vienna State Opera and the Vienna Philharmonic and featuring the participation of various foreign partners.
