Stockhausen's Hymnen, Ensemble musikFabrik
Role: Producer for Musikfest Berlin, Berliner Festspiele
The 2012 edition of Musikfest Berlin presented an evening of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s music in the large hall of the historic 1930’s broadcasting house, Haus des Rundfunks.
Ensemble musikFabrik, conducted by Peter Eötvös, performed Stockhausen’s Hymnen, Dritte Region (Anthems, Third Region) with electronics, under the sound direction of Paul Jeukendrup. The spatial work was performed twice. For the second hearing, audience members were encouraged to move to a different position within the hall for a contrasting listening experience.
The two performances were interspersed with a solo performance of Klavierstück X by Benjamin Kobler.
