Postponed: Composer Festival with Olga Neuwirth
Due to Covid-19, this year’s Composer Festival is postponed to November 2021.
Austrian Olga Neuwirth, born 1968, is one of the major stars of contemporary classical music. Her sources of inspiration transcend genre: as a young trumpet player, Neuwirth was fascinated by Miles Davis and her music contains traces of jazz, Renaissance music, late-Romantic elements, Neoclassicism and Modernism.
She is also inspired by cinema, and together with Nobel Prize-winner Elfriede Jelinek, she composed an opera based on David Lynch’s Lost Highway. Her opera Orlando, based on the novel by Virginia Woolf, recently had its world premiere at the Vienna State Opera.
Sprawling? No, it all melds together into a whole that is equal parts captivating, uncompromising, and uniquely Olga Neuwirth.
