Begegnung mit zeitgenössischer Musik

In conjunction with the concert Wysocki 75 + 75 on October 1, 2019, at the Radiokulturhaus Vienna, which was initiated and presented by members of the Vienna Philharmonic, passwort:klassik organized a musical education project for two school classes from Vienna's 23rd district, the district where the Polish composer Zdzisław Wysocki lives. The encounter with the composer and his music represented for the students of the Rudolf Steiner School in Mauer and the Alt-Erlaa High School a completely new musical experience. 

The students' interaction with several of Wysocki's "Etudes", performed by Dieter Flury (flute), Stefan Neubauer (clarinet) and Alfred Melichar (accordion) developed into a "portrait in sound" (produced by Julian Dworak und Lukas Brunner) and a music video (camera and edit Thomas Hötzeneder). For a concluding celebration of "Zdzisław Wysocki in Liesing" on September 30, Wysocki composed two children's songs for the students involved in the project, which were performed together with his new piece "Seltsame Sachen (Strange Things)" for ensemble and narrator for the first time in public.

Young People's Concert Opens Musical Education Season

The 2019/20 passwort:klassik season opened shortly after the beginning of school with a Young People's Concert in the Wiener Konzerthaus for students in grades five through eight. The program featured the Symphony No. 4 by Gustav Mahler. Instead of advance preparation in the classrooms on the part of the music teachers, the young people were invited to an introduction to the composition before the concert, which was moderated by music educator Hanne Muthspiel-Payer. A string quintet from the Vienna Philharmonic performed musical examples from the first three movements and explained interesting details about their playing technique. In the fourth movement, the students experienced a discussion with the engaging soprano Christiane Karg, who after the concert also answered questions from the young audience.

The orchestra had barely taken its place on the concert stage when the conductor Daniel Harding entered and introduced himself with his first name. This created a friendly atmosphere and awakened the sympathies of the young people. His comments on the third movement were an ideal augmentation to the concert introduction. Attention and concentration were heightened by the use of a live camera that allowed close-ups of the orchestra and on several occasions showed the conductor from the perspective of the musicians. The music and the performance unleashed much enthusiasm from the young audience.
