Neue Vocalsolisten

The dialectic of freedom and oppression runs as a guiding theme through the diverse artistic program of this concert by the Neue Vocalsolisten. Works that were written specifically for the New Vocal Soloists will be performed and will be presented publicly for the first time.

The memories of women who lived through the 2020 Belarus revolution, recorded by artist Olga Bubich, form the basis of Sergei Nevsky's new piece. The quiet but clear voices of women who protested in Istanbul's Taksim Square are reflected in Turkish composer Zeynep Gedizlioglu's Kelimeler.

The Ukrainian-born and Berlin-based composer Alexandra Filonenko transforms Heiner Müller's “Hamlet Machine” into a metaphor for the creation of language from breath and noise. Finally, the premieres of the Ukrainian composer Maksim Kolomiiets and his Russian colleague Vladimir Rannev, whose cycle “EVENTS” is based on Thomas Bernhard’s short stories of the same name and describes the suppression of individual freedom: a poetic but clear answer to the challenges of this time.
