After World War II, Germany was in ruins, and pre-war ideals had to be buried both in society and in the arts. Soon, a flourishing musical scene was growing out of these ruins. Darmstadt’s summer courses became an important centre for modern music, cherishing the heritage of modernism and avant-garde and taking it in new directions.
The concert features composers that were active in Darmstadt as well as a violin, electronics and video piece ordered from Jouni Hirvelä.
