Monte Verità - April 2020
At the beginning of the 20th century, Monte Verità (‘Mountain of Truth’), the legendary hill overlooking Ascona in south-west Tessin, was a Mecca for progressive artists, philosophers and idealists. Within our festival, the mountain is a symbol and synonym for visionary contemporary music. The festival explores the question, in how far artistic creation, music or the planning of a concert can contribute to the change of social consciousness.
We will open with two abundant world premieres of works by Hayden Chisholm und Antonis Anissegos. They are followed by works by Clara Iannotta, Sarah Nemtsov, Mauricio Kagel, David Lang, Luigi Nono, George Crumb, Gerhard Stäbler and others.
Renowned soloists like jazz saxophonist and composer Hayden Chisholm, performance artist Anna Clementi or singer Maria Rosendorfsky will be accompanied by ensemble consord (Münster) and the European Music Project.
The programme also features films, literature, fine arts and DJ sets. Furthermore, the festival partners up with Ulmer Literaturwoche Donau 2020, curated by 'Literatursalon Donau' (Florian L. Arnold and the book store Aegis).
