ensemble recherche ensemble recherche (M. Korbel)

Tuesday, October 7 at 8 pm, join us for the final installment of our 2014 Lucerne Festival coverage. Ensemble Recherche performs works by Swiss composer Klaus Huber and three composers influenced by his work - Heinz Holliger, Brice Pauset and Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf.

Recorded September 13 in Switzerland and performed by the German Ensemble Recherche, the concert features two trios by Klaus Huber, a composer whose oeuvre is characterized by an unwavering faith in artistic utopias. 

Alongside Huber's works are three world premieres commissioned by the Lucerne Festival from three composers influenced by Huber: Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf, Brice Pauset, and Heinz Holliger. 


Klaus Huber: Des Dichters Pflug for String Trio
Heinz Holliger: New work; world premiere commissioned by Lucerne Festival
Brice Pauset: Subito sempre (langsamer Satz); world premiere commissioned by Lucerne Festival
Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf: Hommage à Klaus Huber for viola and ensemble; world premiere commissioned by Lucerne Festival
Klaus Huber: Schattenblätter for bass clarinet, violoncello and piano

These broadcasts are funded by the American Friends of Lucerne Festival.
