ECLAT 2024–Save the Date!
ECLAT 2024 will take place from January 31 to February 4. Among others, a children’s music theater by Clemens K. Thomas and Valentin Schaff and the large-scale project POETRY AFFAIRS with the Neue Vocalsolisten can be experienced.
Join us in anticipation of the POETRY AFFAIRS that were miniature in ECLAT 2023: Inspired by his anthology Grand Tour. Journeys through the Young Poetry of Europe, the Neue Vocalsolisten, together with Büchner Prize winner Jan Wagner, invited five female poets and five young composer*s from ten different European countries to explore together the relationships between language, composition and vocal art. The multifaceted, year-long encounter is characterized by great impartiality, a desire to experiment, and the need to overcome all mutual »instrumentalization« (of music by serving sensations, of language by reducing it to sound phenomena).
The festival program (as of October 16) can currently be found in the schedule of Musik der Jahrhunderte.
