Thank you for the hint - I just learned that that will take place in a concert with London Sinfonietta. Interesting!

Klang by Karlheinz Stockhausen (U.S. Premiere)
March 26, 2016

Karlheinz Stockhausen's fiercely original KLANG (meaning "sound" in German) is an acoustic and electronic work so massive that it requires all day and all three of the Met's iconic buildings to stage. This twenty-one-part, unfinished composition was originally envisioned by Stockhausen as consisting of twenty-four individual compositions (one for each hour of the day), but the work was left unfinished at the time of his death. This performance will mark the U.S. premiere of Klang in its entirety, and will be performed at the Metropolitan Museum's Fifth Avenue building, The Met Breuer, and The Cloisters museum and gardens in Fort Tryon Park. More details will follow.

We're still finalizing a lot of details on this, but the basic shape of it is in place. Been working on this for a while.

That would be absolutely sensational. A long way to travel from Australia - but it would be worth it. If only I had money!

I predict that the entire LICHT cycle will be premiered on the composer's centenary in 2028.

And it would be nice if SONNTAG gets that New York premiere they were planning a few years back.

Wonder if Graham Vick will tackle another LICHT opera, MITTWOCH was a great success even garnering an award.

Finances/logistics are always a challenge with these operas though.

I feel that it could be useful to have a discussion-forum on the music of Stockhausen. There are so many people from all over the world, young and old, learned and eager to get into contact with this musical world: musicologists, composers, musicians, music lovers; people who plan concerts - who write books or have to give lectures and so on. So there should be much stuff, many ideas that we can share. And when we have open questions, there may be people who studied just that and could give a hint or a stimulus. A problem might be the English language, but i feel that is the only possibility that many people who are interested can participate. And we can exercise tolerance to mistakes! Thomas Ulrich
