ensemble histoirefuture & Matthias Klenota

People who could hardly be more different unexpectedly spend a night together. They are, each for themselves, on the run from a gigantic man-made thunderstorm that has got completely out of control: the war that later historians will call the 30 Years War. In the restless night, the boundaries between wishful dream and nightmare, between ghostly apparitions and the reality of the protagonists' lives become blurred. The main medium through which she and her world communicate to us are noises, sounds, music.
The central axis of the piece is the music of the time around 1650, which is heard both in realisation of the musical text and in permanent twisting and turning, deconstruction and transformation of it with compositional and improvisational means. It is the music that, as a sublimation of human experience, allows existential questions and possible answers to shimmer in the darkness.
