Exploratory spirit

The Ensemble Resonanz is one of the world’s leading chamber orchestras – and a longstanding institution in Hamburg. The string collective regularly comes together with acclaimed colleagues to perform programmes beyond the realms of the mainstream. This time around, the award-winning GrauSchumacher Piano Duo joins the ensemble, renowned for their »telepathy« as they play in sync with one another. Together with conductor Bas Wiegers, they devote all their focus to the contemporary – with gripping works by Isabel Mundry and Helmut Lachenmann.

Visions as a package: If you buy three or more concerts of the »Elbphilharmonie Visions« festival at the same time, you will receive a 30% discount on the ticket price. To do so, select »Visions Trio Bonus 30%« in the shopping basket.

»Why write music? Because you want to discover something new,« says Isabel Mundry, outlining her inner urge to compose. Her work is often driven by philosophical questions – the perception of time and space, remembering and forgetting – and sometimes simply the stark reality of everyday life. Her work »Signaturen« for two pianos, percussion and strings, which takes the last bar of a Mozart sonata and runs with it, recently had its premiere. The quest for new sounds is at the heart of Helmut Lachenmann’s work too. For his work »Double / Grido II«, the legendary »New Music« composer transformed his Third String Quartet into a sensual and spatially perceptible sound experience for no less than 48 strings.
