Jagden und Formen – Mar. 12, 2017

“Jagden und Formen, a 50-minute, single-movement musical thrill-ride for large ensemble” – Tom Service, The Guardian

With his music full of energy and immediate appeal, Wolfgang Rihm is considered by many to be one of the most radical figures writing today. Massively ambitious in scale, with a torrent of ideas and addictive energy, Jagden und Formen (Hunts and Forms) is one the composers most engaging works to date. Tom Service from the Guardian writes;

“Whatever else post-tonal music was supposed to do, it was supposed to sound like this – you’ll experience one of the most life-enhancing jolts of musical energy in post-war music.”
