Gillian Bibby: Anacrocosmos (1971/72)
Premiered at the Darmstadt Summer Course 1974
Ulrich Mosch (Lecture)
After gaining her first musical training in her home country, the New Zealand composer and pianist Gillian Bibby (*1945) continued her studies in Berlin and Cologne, where her teachers included Karlheinz Stockhausen. The trio Anacrocosmos, which she wrote during her time in Berlin, foregrounds the visual side of music-making, incorporating elements from instrumental theater.
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 di erent 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.
