Grenzraum HÖREN 14 // voice, books and FIRE II – Ullmann / PHØNIX16

MaerzMusik 2023

In this series, the singers of PHØNIX16 explore the cycle “voice, books and FIRE II” by Jakob Ullmann, a work in which the composer reflects on the complex relationship between music and language.

“‘voice, books and FIRE’ is the result of my reflections about the relationships between music and language: language as sound and language as text, the numerous relationships between texts of different cultural and religious traditions, between the work of the human spirit in the present and in the past, and the questions arising from the problem of understanding these different traditions, languages and texts and representing them in a present, which has lost knowledge about substantial parts, even of its own tradition and history.” – Jakob Ullmann
