Masterpieces to Miniatures: Music of Haas, Stockhausen, Thomalla, Poppe, and Saunders

Ensemble Dal Niente, Chicago, Illinois, USA

With the support of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, Ensemble Dal Niente will present a three-part series concerts in Chicago and Minneapolis in 2013, featuring music by leading European composers, all of whom have made significant impact in the landscape of contemporary German music. Whether masterpiece or miniature, these works and their composers have been underrepresented in the American midwest. Ensemble Dal Niente will perform important pieces by Stockhausen, Thomalla, Poppe, Haas, and Saunders. The concerts will engage listeners by presenting pieces of wildly different lengths and scopes, ranging from Haas' epic "In Vain" to shorter works by Saunders.

February – November 2013
Chicago and Minneapolis, USA
