Cerha Monumentum: Lange Konzertnacht at Ars Electronica Festival

Ars Electronica Festival commissioned a real-time audio-visual performance. In the first part of the concert in the Brucknerhaus Linz, the Bruckner Orchestra Linz under the direction of argentine conductor and composer Dante Anzolini played works by such great musical innovators as Edgar Varèse (1883–1965) and Friedrich Cerha (born 1926). The ninth edition of the Big Concert event was a return to the origins – those of electronic music – and a look head to the new musical spaces being carved out by the pioneers of the present.
