Music and figurative art
Concert series Art controversy
Earl Brown, Tristan Murail, Arthur Lourie, Sofia Gubaidulina, Gyorgy Ligeti

From Aristotle to Lessing, from Gramsci and Adorno to Deleuze and Levinas - there has always been a discussion about intrinsic values of the art forms: whether the arts exist as self-reliant phenomena or they all have common roots and do need each other. At first sight, the art of music is perhaps the only self-sufficient form of art. That’s why it has certain power to influence our perception of other arts as a background process or else by highlighting elements of the other arts or by opening up yet another facets of a piece of art. Together with Vladimir Tarnopolski and Fedor Sofronov the listener is invited to this journey though the different art forms and to take part in the controversial discussion between music and other arts.

Throughout the XXth century avant-garde in the broadest sense of the word has always been attractive to general public and to artists, who almost inevitably become the newsmakers of our time. The Studio for New Music approaches the secret of this vitality and attractivity of avant-garde art, focusing on the synthetic, additive nature of the music. Fashion on Jazz? Avant-garde is willing to accept this genre. Emerging Rock movement? And here again avant-garde embraces the style. Folk and World music? Here you are! Five concerts of the series represent five pluses “+” for everyone interested in the history and sources of avant-garde.
Works by Padding, Janssen, Stravinsky, Andriessen, Pärt, De Leeuw, Gubaidulina, Schöllhorn, Romitelli, Murray, Ligeti, Zappa, Berio, Sysoev, Reich, Glass a.o.
