What is the Modernist movement in music? What does it sound like? It does not prescribe any predetermined rules or strict forms. Rather, it the expression of the hard fought and yet so fragile artistic freedoms of the 20th century. Ensemble Modern is dedicated to uncovering new works and keeping alive "classics" of the Modernist era. One of the group's idols is Kurt Weill. Their recording of The Threepenny Opera is still a regarded as a benchmark interpretation. Since their appointment as artist-in-residence for the 2011 Festival, every concert by Ensemble Modern has been a real event. One thing is certain: In 2017 the musicians will present a programme in the Bauhaus full of surprises!
