Ensemble Modern
Mirela Ivičević / Milica Djordjević / Petra Strahovnik / Justė Janulytė / Tania León

Concert

The Ensemble Modern first came to the musikprotokoll in the late 1980s. One of the young composers of commissioned works at that time, Karlheinz Essl, remarked on what a wonderful opportunity it was to write a piece for the “Rolls Royce” of ensemble music. The musikprotokoll could only afford the Rolls Royce rather infrequently, but the time has come again in 2022, and this time the program will consist exclusively of works by female composers. These include (Austrian) premiere performances from Croatian-Austrian composer Mirela Ivičević and Serbian-German composer Milica Djordjević, as well as from Slovenian artist Petra Strahovnik, Justė Janulytė from Lithuania, and last but not least, Tania León, who was born in Havana in 1943 and has lived in the United States for the last several decades.
