To describe his piece Terretektorh, which spreads 88 musicians among the audience – and also the listeners among the orchestra – Iannis Xenakis found clear images: each listener is on a mountaintop in a storm attacking him from all sides. Or in a fragile boat on the open sea. Or amidst a universe sprinkled with little sonic stars.

To James Tenney, each piece was like an adventure, a push towards new boundaries – and that is exactly where he follows a line of tradition, despite all his originality. The American avant-gardist frequently wrote homages to important precursors, including in his Form 3, which he dedicated to the composer Stefan Wolpe (1902-1974), a colleague who was as inclined to experimentation as he was universally interested.

Each work needs a title. Chaya Czernowin likes to determine hers before she even begins composing. Thus, it acts as a magnet for conscious or unconscious thoughts and feelings. What ideas may the title of her new piece, The Fabrication of Light, bring to the fore? The audience may look forward not only to new sounds, but also to an innovative spatial concept featuring three different constellations of musicians and audience.
