WildKat PR Welcomes “Haydn 2032”

WildKat PR is very excited to introduce our newest client: The “Haydn 2032” project.

Idolised by Stendhal, admired by Mozart and celebrated by the music world is the composer Joseph Haydn. But who is he today? What are the musical means of expression, the, images and words to describe a composer whose work can be heard every day in concert halls around the world, whose creations have been recorded hundreds of times and whose life seems to have been impeccably researched?

Haydn 2032 is a unique conceptual art project that will realise the performance and recording of all 107 Haydn symphonies by the composer’s 300th anniversary in 2032.

Every year, the orchestras “Il Giardino Armonico” and “Kammerorchester Basel” will perform a further set of Haydn’s symphonies in different venues in Europe. Each concert performance is a modern interpretation of the concert settings of the 18th century to include lectures, photography exhibitions, talks and culinary events. In May 2015, these events will take place in Berlin, Eisenstadt and Basel. Each concert cycle is recorded on historical instruments for the first time and released on CD (label “Outhere”). Works by Haydn’s contemporaries and musical models, such as Gluck, W.F. Bach, Porpora and Kraus, will be positioned alongside Haydn’s symphonies in order to embed them in a wider historical context. Limited edition books will complete the thematical series, including a CD, images and texts by well-known contemporary authors and photographers.

Wir freuen uns sehr, unseren neuesten Kunden, das „Haydn 2032” –Projekt, vorzustellen.

Vergöttert von Stendhal, bewundert von Mozart und gefeiert von der ganzen Musikwelt ist der Komponist Joseph Haydn. Aber wer ist er heute? Welche musikalischen Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten, Bilder und Worte können für einen Komponisten, dessen Arbeit jeden Tag in Konzertsälen auf der ganzen Welt erklingt, dessen Werke hunderte Male aufgezeichnet wurden und dessen Leben nahezu vollkommen erforscht wurde, gefunden werden?

Haydn 2032 ist ein einzigartiges künstlerisches Projekt, das die konzeptionelle Aufführung und Einspielung aller 107 Haydn-Symphonien bis zum 300. Geburtstag des Komponisten im Jahr 2032 verwirklichen möchte.

Jedes Jahr werden die Orchester „Il Giardino Armonico” und das „Kammerorchester Basel” eine weitere, thematisch zueinander passende Konzertreihe an Symphonien an unterschiedlichen Orten in Europa präsentieren. Jedes Konzert stellt eine moderne Interpretation der Konzertsituation des 18. Jahrhunderts dar, sodass die musikalische Aufführung von Vorträgen, Fotoausstellungen, Diskussionen und kulinarischen Köstlichkeiten umrahmt wird. Im Mai 2015 finden diese multimedialen Aufführungen in Berlin, Eisenstadt und Basel statt. Die einzelnen Konzertreihen werden zusätzlich auf historischen Instrumenten eingespielt und auf einer CD (Label „Outhere”) veröffentlicht. Werke von Haydns Zeitgenossen und musikalischen Vorbildern wie Gluck, W. F. Bach, Porpora und Kraus werden Haydns Symphonien ergänzen und in einen größeren historischen Kontext einbetten. Eine limitierte Buchedition wird die thematische Verwobenheit der einzelnen Kunstformen nochmals verdeutlichen und vervollständigen. Hier sind CD sowie Fotografien und Texte von bekannten zeitgenössischen Autoren und Fotografen enthalten.

On air this Saturday on BBC Radio 6 Music, will be Nils Frahm who has been described as ‘One of the finest pianists in the world’. The German musician and composer will be joining Mary Anne Hobbs for the show at 7:00am for some heartbreaking, beautiful piano and synth pieces from the Erased Tapes label.

Now based in Berlin, Frahm was taught in his childhood to play by Nahum Brodski, a student of the last scholar of Tchaikovsky. His unconventional approach to an age-old instrument, played contemplatively and intimately, has won him many fans around the world. For a musician this early in his career, Frahm displays an incredibly developed sense of control and restraint in his work, catching the ear of many fans.

Nils Frahm has also recently produced art and music book SHEETS, published by Manners McDade. The book features sheet music from ten of Nils Frahm’s piano pieces taken from his albums: Felt, The Bells and Wintermusik, now available in print for the first time in the form of a hardback art & music book.

The book includes specially commissioned photographs from London-based artist, Stuart Bailes, and Frahm has written a personal introduction to each piece with diagrams and instructions explaining how to convert your piano to achieve his signature Felt sound.

Tune into BBC Radio 6 Music with Mary Anne Hobbs on Saturday 11th January at 7:00am to listen live, and you can take a look at Frahm’s book SHEETS with Faber Music.
