3 composition commissions for Kissinger LiederWerkstatt

Kissinger Sommer, Bad Kissingen, Germany

Directed by Axel Bauni the Lieder workshop Kissinger LiederWerkstatt is a unique project in Germany with the distinction of focusing specifically on contemporary Lieder with piano. The KISSINGER SOMMER festival has set itself the task of issuing composition commissions to renowned composers to write new works for voice and piano in order to help the somewhat nostalgic image of theLied  to regain topicality. To do so every year a different poet is in focus. The poet for 2013 is still to be announced. Among others, in 2013 the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation will be supporting composition commissions to Wolfgang Rihm, Moritz Eggert and Wilhelm Killmayer. The premieres will be performed in two concerts held on July 6 and 7, 2013. Preparations for the concerts will feature as part of a workshop attended by the composers, expected to be run from July 1, 2013.
