In order to get us off our metaphorical couch, out of our metaphorical hot tub – in short, to force ourselves out of our comfort zone – we’ve decided to address the works of a cohort of new composers in November 2020. Naturally they’re not entirely new to us, nor to knowledgeable music lovers: what’s new is our collaboration with them, and four of the five compositions to be performed.

The idea came from Christoph Renhart, musical director at the Franciscan cultural center in Graz; thus the focus is on composers from that city. We see Vienna, Budapest, and Mexico City as basically suburbs of Graz, hence the name: UrAufführungen (premieres) from GU (Graz Umgebung, the Graz area).

A clearer link between the pieces is their interweaving of electronics, acoustic instruments and improvised elements. But come to think of it, the music doesn’t sound uncomfortable at all…
