The Ensemble Modern is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. At Musikfest Berlin, it will present a concert evening with two familiar figures: the composer George Benjamin, with whom the ensemble has enjoyed a long collaboration for decades, and Wolfgang Rihm, whose work in progress Jagden und Formen premiered 12 years ago. At that time, Jagden und Formen was still a manageable score, which over the years has developed into a gigantic work landscape lasting one hour.
