The Musikfabrik portrays the composer Rebecca Saunders at the Musikfest Berlin in two concerts with a selection of works for different ensemble casts from 1998 to 2020. The composer and Musikfabrik have been working together regularly since 1998, to their mutual musical delight. “Close cooperation with musicians is an inspiration, a driving force”, she professed in her Munich acceptance speech. “We are a team and as banal as it may sound: Without you, our New Music would not resound. My work often pays homage to you, to your mastery, to your astonishing virtuosity, to your decades-long dedication to your instrument.” This programme will look at the collaboration’s early days and move on to joint projects from more recent times.
