Drawing on its artistic vision, Klangforum Wien has a special approach to music, aiming to reinstate to it a sense of what is current and important, which has been lost during the previous century. The concert’s programme includes recent works by composers from three different countries, each one characterized by a different aesthetic approach. 
 
There are three underlying layers in Tratado dello inasible (2013) by Alberto Posadas (b. 1967): the detailed curves of fractal theory, the miniscule sound nuances of musical instruments, and the relation between music, architecture, and painting. 
 
Born in 1954, Beat Furrer composes music that explores clear, abstract forms. Keeping symbolism and extramusical meaning to a minimum, he focuses on gestures. In Linea dell’orizzonte (2012), they present themselves as distorted shadows. The Italian title is open to interpretation. 
An organic whole drawing on jazz and ‘popular’ musics, Howl (2011) by Michael Lapidakis (b. 1960) converses with Allen Ginsberg. Heard from a recording, he recites one of the most emblematic poems of the beat generation. 
 
The music of Pierluigi Billone (b. 1960) is a special journey of sound and ritual with regard to the expressive potential of musical instruments. In Ebe und anders (2014) the trumpet and the trombone are the leading soloist, playing as one instrument. Billone’s music brings together experimental techniques and jazz elements.
