About the event

In view of the quantity and quality of holdings of music materials of all epochs, up to the latest international productions of sheet music, the music collection of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek forms part of the world’s leading music libraries. One important institutional collection mandate is directed to artistic and biographic sources on composers and musicians from Bavaria.

"(d#)sonances. Modern musical art in Bavaria" presents the sound of the present and contemporary music culture. In cooperation with the associations of musical artists Tonkünstlerverband Bayern e. V. and Tonkünstler München e. V., materials are made audible that have not yet become "history", thereby eluding our historical assessment and selection. With openness and confidence, the listener can follow mostly unknown paths – an eventful, intensive experience that constitutes a thrilling challenge for our aesthetic customs.

The concert brings works by four generations of composers living in Bavaria to the listeners’ ears:
Gloria Coates (*1938), Dorothee Eberhardt (*1952), Isabel Mundry (*1963) and Katharina Schmauder (*1994)

The works will be played by the young Centaur Quartet and the Munich flute duo Elisabeth Weinzierl and Edmund Wächter.
