Ulrich Mosch (Lecture)
The English composer Elisabeth Lutyens (1906 – 1983) adopted Arnold Schönberg’s “method of composition with twelve notes related only to one another” early on and used this as the foundation for her own musical language. Alongside an extensive and diverse body of concert music, she also composed for numerous theater and film productions.
In the four concert-lectures entitled “Rückspiegel” (Retrospective), the musicologist Ulrich Mosch will present, in sound and words, four works by female composers that were performed during the first decades of the Darmstadt Summer Course. In addition to the works themselves and their connections to the respective questions of the time that were being discussed in Darmstadt and elsewhere, there will be a special focus on the different paths taken through life
by these composers, who belong to different generations and come from different parts of the world. Each event will open and close with a complete performance of the work in question.
