Plus-Minus Ensemble present Peter Ablinger (external link)’s settings of the voices of Jacques Brel, Forough Farrokzhad and Ilya Prigogine. New works by Guy De Bièvre (external link) and Bernhard Lang (external link) link with the ensemble’s experimental aesthetics. With his controversial Harakiri it seemed as if Nicolaus A. Huber was committing harakiri himself — since the very sparse composition didn’t satisfy the commissioning party, it was years before the piece had its premiere.
