St. Johanns-Vorstadt 19-21, 4056Basel
Works by Magnus Lindberg, Tristan Murail, Iannis Xenakis, Toshio Hosokawa and Jing Yang.
The 6th large-scale program makes a stop on the journey through the empty cosmos at the largest objects present there, the blue giants, and also ventures into the vicinity of the heaviest phenomena in space, the black holes. This is about music packed with energy, but also about the palatable melancholic aspect created by the fact that even the largest objects are finite.
