The Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich on Radio SRF 2 Kultur

In the programme "New Music in Concert" you will hear a concert recording of the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich on 17 January 2024 at 21:00.

Under the direction of Pierre-André Valade, the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich will perform works by Ligeti, Ben-Shabetai, Fallah and Fedele.

"I think the music shows everything that's going on in my head," says composer Farzia Fallah. What she thematises in her works often has something to do with her home country: Farzia Fallah was born in Tehran in 1980 and trained there as an engineer and musician. In her late twenties, she moved to Germany to continue her studies. "Traces of a Burning Mass" was written in 2022 as her first orchestral work; it is now receiving its Swiss premiere. André Valade will conduct Ligeti's "Lontano", a modern classic, as well as works by Ivan Fedele and Ari Ben-Shabtai, which speak a completely different tonal language.
