ZeitGenuss 2021: Composition Commissions issued to Dai Fujikura and Sara Glojnarić

Kulturamt-Kulturbüro der Stadt Karlsruhe/Department of Cultural Affairs of the City of Karlsruhe, Germany


2021 sees ZeitGenuss, the City of Karlsruhe's festival for music of our time, enter its ninth edition. In addition to new works by students from Karlsruhe's University of Music for the Aleph Guitar Quartet, Ensemble TEMA, the Christuskirche Chamber Choir and percussionist Leonie Klein, contemporary percussion literature will see the addition of not one but two new pieces of work: A solo work by Sara Glojnarić and a work by composer Dai Fujikura for duo will be premiered in a percussion concert. In this instrumental evening of percussion, Christian Dierstein and Isao Nakamura will bring together different percussive stances – complemented by Leonie Klein as a representative of the upcoming generation – thereby sonically visualizing the different works with this body of instruments that is still underestimated and thus not yet fully exploited. The two composition commissions are being sponsored by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.

Due to the current situation and associated regulations, there may be changes at short notice. For the latest information on the project please therefore check karlsruhe.de/b1/kultur/kulturfoerderung/kulturamt.de
