In the Christian church, Advent has always been a time of fasting in which the long wait for the birth of the child, the incarnation of Christ, was consciously celebrated. In Bavarian, it is also known as “Die Stade Zeit”.
The third concert in the “Schöne Neue Musik” series focuses on this interim period of Advent. Contemporary music that deals with the pre-Christmas and Christmas period beyond romantic recollection is actually a rarity and therefore finds its appropriate space in this extraordinary setting.
The starting point for this program is Alfred Schnittke’s “Silent Night” paraphrase, interpreted in a very “unique” way. In addition, excerpts from the piano cycle “Vingt regars nur l’enfant-Jesu” can be heard as well as Helmut Lachenmann’s “Cradle-Music”.
In Bach’s “Advent Solo Violin Sonata” in G minor, which is performed in an extended version by Robert Schumann, a siciliano refers to the shepherds in the field – a musical topos that Gerald Resch takes up again in his short violin composition.

Ernst Matthias Friedrich recites Advent texts that deepen, counterpoint and expand on what is heard. And so once again, also and especially through the wondrous audiovisual performance art of Manuela Hartel, a sensually tangible, beautiful new music is created.
