20 September, Riksscenen: Critically acclaimed performance of Stockhausen's magic masterwork
Two pianos, percussion and a ring modulator: that’s all it took for German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen to create one of the magical piano masterpieces of the late 20th century.
A hypnotic sound experience that casts an intoxicating spell for an hour, Mantra was premiered in 1970 and has become a contemporary music milestone. Along with their instruments, the two pianists in Mantra are required to make sound with cymbals, woodblocks and two ring modulators, leading to dazzling transformations of the piano sound.
In this version, world renowned classical pianists Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich with Marco Stroppa at the helm of the electronics bring their much praised interpretation of Mantra to Oslo.
The concert is part of the 2018 ULTIMA Oslo Contemporary Music Festival.
