Russlands andere Stimmen

Ensemble Phoenix Basel

Ensemble Phoenix Basel's response to the global boycott of Russian artists in a pacifist frame of mind. These «other» voices from Russia must and should be heard, for they have significant things to say, whether older or younger.

The composer Galina Ustvolskaïa was once a favourite pupil of Dmitri Shostakovich and lived in seclusion in Siberia after the end of the Second World War until her death. Her works were hardly played until 1968. It was not until the 1990s that she achieved a certain degree of fame abroad.

Alexander Khubeev uses multimedia to set to music and illustrate the poem «Don't leave the room» (1970) by the Russian poet Joseph Brodsky, who was expatriated from the Soviet Union in 1972. This poetic warning against the threat of the outside world takes on prophetic significance after the current «Corona» experiences.

The Russian composer Marina Khorkova lives and works in Berlin. In her work «collision», extreme registers, fragile and brutal sound gestures, static and unmediated eventfulness collide with each other in numerous contrasting sound fields. It was premiered by the Ensemble Ascolta in Stuttgart in 2015.

The youngest composer of this concert is Daniil Posazhennikov, who is currently studying theatre direction in Zurich.
