UA VI.Die 1960er: Der Herr Lehrer I

The Zafraan Ensemble celebrates its 10th anniversary!

In a series of ten chamber concerts, the history of Berlin from the 1910s to today is told as a musical one. Each of the evenings represents a decade, with a work premiered in Berlin during that decade forming the programmatic trigger.

As a composer, he is only a lexical term for most people, albeit quite wrongly, but as a composition
teacher he remains the most important personality for many: Boris Blacher. His students at the
Hochschule der K√ľnste are just as much legends (Huber, Yun and Crumb were chosen almost by
chance) as his openness to all compositional possibilities, which goes hand in hand. In the 1960s, he,
who traditionally opened every new post-war cultural institution in West Berlin with a specially
composed brass fanfare, expanded his poetics to electronic music and worked closely with the
Electronic Studio of the TU Berlin. Yet another step, like all those from which his students make their
own footsteps and follow very individual paths.
