June 2024



The interdisciplinary event series klang_sprachen aims to interweave contemporary music and poetry. In June 2024, the successful and innovative project will be continued in a collaboration between the Tyrolean chamber orchestra InnStrumenti and the W:ORTE poetry festival. Texts by Gerhard Ruiss form the starting point for the 8th edition. The writer is thus given a special role and becomes part of the chamber orchestra's performance. So is it a reading or a concert? It is both or something completely new, because language is given new perspectives through the new sonic context. Six composers have been commissioned to create new pieces of music especially for this evening and to relate music and text to each other in a variety of creative ways: There will be world premieres by Johanna Doderer, Viola Falb, Ruth Goller, Melissa Coleman, Susanna Ridler and Helmut Sprenger.


The program series klang_sprachen is made possible by a collaboration between the Tyrolean Chamber Orchestra InnStrumenti and the Innsbruck Poetry Festival W:ORTE, Treibhaus Innsbruck, the Jazz & Music Club Porgy & Bess Vienna, the Heart of Noise Festival and the ÖGZM (Austrian Society for Contemporary Music).
