Composition Commission issued to Manos Tsangaris

Munich Chamber Orchestra, Munich, Germany


The sensible and meaningful link between people’s different media perception in art works is at the focus of the compositional work of Manos Tsangaris. With the support of the EvS Music Foundation the Munich Chamber Orchestra is issuing a 15-minute orchestral work for strings and a percussionist to the composer. This work will be premiered in the fifth subscription concert in the 2015/16 season whose motto is "Isolation", under the artistic management of Alexander Liebreich. A stimulating challenge for the orchestra here is the fact that Manos Tsangaris will also be featuring the musicians both scenically and semi-scenically.
With this commission the Munich Chamber Orchestra continues and intensifies its important and striking work with living composers. At the same time, it aims to build up the contemporary repertoire for string or chamber orchestra and nurture within the audience a self-evident willingness to explore New Music.
