    Marco Stroppa  regie sonore
    Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928–2007)
    GESANG DER JÜNGLINGE. Musique électronique
    REFRAIN pour trois instrumentistes
    ZYKLUS pour un percussionniste
    KONTAKTE pour sons électroniques, piano et percussions

    Stockhausen a prétendu être originaire de la planète Sirius. En réalité, il naquit près de Cologne, en 1928, et grandit au milieu des horreurs du nazisme et de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale. Sa mère fut victime du « programme euthanasie », son père tomba sur le front de l’Est, et lui-même s’occupa de mourants dans un hôpital militaire. Pas étonnant qu’après-guerre il fût l’un des plus intransigeants avant-gardistes et prônât de se débarrasser entièrement du poids de la tradition. Les œuvres de ce concert en sont l’illustration. Dans GESANG DER JÜNGLING (« Chant des éphèbes »), œuvre pionnière de 1956 qui changea la face du monde musical, il mêle pour la première fois la voix humaine à des sonorités électroniques et met en œuvre son idée d’une musique spatiale. KONTAKTE poursuit dans cette direction et associe des sons instrumentaux enregistrés et produits en direct avec un orage de sonorités électroniques, tandis que ZYKLUS (1959) est un essai de musique aléatoire : le percussionniste choisit lui-même son chemin dans la partition.

    Pierre-Laurent Aimard

    The French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, who was born in 1957 in Lyon, studied at the Paris Conservatoire with Yvonne Loriod and with Maria Curcio in London. He also participated in the seminars in analysis led by Pierre Bou-lez at IRCAM in Paris and took courses with György Kurtág in Budapest. Since winning the Messiaen Prize in Royan in 1973, he has been regarded as the authoritative interpreter of this composer’s works. When Boulez founded the Ensemble intercontemporain in 1976, he appointed Aimard as its solo pianist. Aimard has given the world premieres of many significant compositions since then, including Répons by Boulez, several of György Ligeti’s Etudes, and Harrison Birtwistle’s piano concerto Responses. At the same time, he has consistently performed the “traditional” repertoire as a soloist and chamber musician, which he presents in carefully thoughtout programs with unusual dramaturgical contexts. Aimard was the 2007 LUCERNE FESTIVAL’s “artiste étoile”; he has also had residencies with the Berlin Philharmonic and at the Vienna Konzerthaus, New York’s Carnegie Hall, the Cité de la Musique in Paris, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, the Tanglewood Festival, and the Southbank Centre in London. From 2009 to 2016, he served as Artistic Director of the Aldeburgh Festival. In the past season, Aimard gave recitals in Tokyo, Beijing, Moscow, St. Petersburg, New York, Paris, and Vienna, as well as at the Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin, and he undertook a European tour with the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra. He has won many prizes, including the Ernst von Siemens Music Prize in 2017; his recording of Bach’s Art of the Fugue received the Diapason d’or and the Choc du Monde de la Musique. His most recent release, which appeared this spring, is a complete recording of Messiaen’s Catalogue d’oiseaux. Aimard is a professor at the Music Academy of Cologne.

    LUCERNE FESTIVAL (IMF) debut on 23 August 1979 in Oiseaux exotiques by Messiaen, with Miltiades Caridis conducting the Swiss Festival Orchestra.

    Dirk Rothbrust

    Born in 1968 in Illingen, Germany, Dirk Rothbrust ranks among the most renowned international percussionists. From 1986 to 1994, he studied in Saarbrücken and Karlsruhe with Franz Lang and Isao Nakamura. He has been a member of the Cologne Percussion Quartet since 1995 and of the Ensemble Musikfabrik since 2005, and from 2001 to 2008 he played with the Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin. Whether with an ensemble or as a soloist, Rothbrust concertizes at all the important contemporary music festivals in Europe and collaborates with the leading composers and performers of our time, including Pierre-Laurent Aimard, Martha Argerich, and Maurizio Pollini; the saxophonist Peter Brötzmann; and the electronic duo Mouse on Mars. As a soloist, Rothbrust has given the world premieres of such works as void by Rebecca Saunders, Beat Furrer’s Xenos III, and Wolfgang Mitterer’s Rasch, all of which – like many other works – were written specifically for him.

Since 1999, Stroppa has additionally taught composition at the Stuttgart Academy for Music and Performing Arts.
