GEIGER – XENAKISFESTIVAL OCH MAJFEST 2019

GEIGER Xenakisfestival och Majfest 24-25 maj på Teater Trixter

Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001) var en grekisk tonsättare men sedan 1950-talet verksam i Paris, Frankrike. Hans musikaliska utbildning var, i jämförelse med andra tonsättare av samma dignitet, ringa. Han bevistade bland annat Olivier Messiaens masterclasses på 40 och 50-talet och denne sade vid ett tillfälle till Xenakis; (fritt citerat ur minnet) ”Du har den stora lyckan att vara grek och utbildad arkitekt, använd detta och gå din egen väg”.

Den första kvällen på GEIGERs Majfest tillägnar vi helt musik av Iannis Xenakis. Vi har lyckats skrapa ihop ett riktigt fint knippe kammarmusikaliska stycken, några av dem väldigt sällan hörda, iallafall i Sverige!

Majfestens andra dag gör vi ett litet blandat program. Vi bad Saxofonkvartetten stanna kvar och spela ett program med musik av bland andra Marie Samuelsson och Dror Feiler. George Kentros bjuder vi in för att göra ett nytt stycke av Fredrik Olofsson. Detta intresserade oss mycket för att stycket i stort sett består av att George slår sönder en fiol. FLUID DYNAMIX (Fredrik Olofsson och Sören Hermansson) kommer att framföra musik av bland andra Jenny Hettne och Åke Parmerud.
