Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop in der St. Matthäus Kirche

The St. Matthäus Church is a unique place in the Kulturforum on the southern edge of the Tiergarten, which as a living cultural space regularly hosts events and changing exhibitions. Parallel to the concert on June 03, the work "Concentrated Form of Non-Material Energy" by Edith Dekyndt can be seen.
At the concert on June 03, Kaleidoskop will present works by two distinguished female composers, among others: The "String Quartet No. 5" by Gloria Coates, with its complex glissandi, opens up a sound cosmos all its own. With songs from "Book of Days" by Meredith Monk, Kaleidoskop will also introduce some purely vocal pieces.
The concert will also feature the composition "Aus aller Welt Stammende" by Polish composer Zygmunt Krauze. This rarely performed work for 10 string players will be rehearsed by Kaleidoskop with violinist Maria Stępień, who as a member of the Radical Polish Ansambl has dedicated herself to the interpretation of traditional and experimental Polish music.
In September, Kaleidoskop will make the halls of the Sammlung Hoffmann resound. The works from the June 3 concert will be heard again in new contexts during these performances and will enter into a dialogue with the artworks.
