Dialogues ZEIT (TIME)

This year’s Dialogues festival (25 – 29 November 2015) featured Morton Feldman, Beat Furrer and Mozart. According to Matthias Schulz: “What all three composers have in common is the commitment to music without clichés.  After Luft (Air) in 2012, Licht (Light) in 2013 and Wort (Word) in 2014, the motto of the Dialogues festival in 2015 was Zeit (Time).

This was the fourth Dialogues festival planned and organized by Matthias Schulz and had as its motto Zeit (Time).  Besides Mozart the other two featured composers were Beat Furrer and Morton Feldman. The four-day festival came to a successful end on 29 November 2015 and was highly acclaimed by audiences.

Eight concerts took place in various formats: with live visuals by luma.launisch, with art installations, a dance project as well as concerts in the Mario Mauroner Gallery of Contemporary Art.  For the duration of the festival an art installation by the Austrian artist Constantin Luser was on display in the rooms of the Mozarteum Foundation.

An informal discussion, introductory lectures, a workshop, an audio play, film performances and a youth project rounded off the programme.  A lounge was set up on two evenings in the Wiener Saal.

The world premiere of spazio immergente, a work by Beat Furrer, commissioned by the Mozarteum Foundation took place during the festival and was highly acclaimed.  Mojca Erdmann stepped in at very short notice and gave an impressive performance of the highly complex work which is based on a Mozart fragment.  The complete version is to follow soon, also performed by Mojca Erdmann, a Dialoge workshop in the truest sense. 

The audience response and ticket sales followed on from the positive developments of the past years.  The dance project Zeit-Bild with choreographer Etienne Guilloteau which was realized in cooperation with the Szene Salzburg and dancers from the SEAD Bodhi project, as well as musicians from the Austrian Ensemble for New Music, was completely sold out.  The long-standing sponsorship commitments from the Gutmann Bank and from the Federal Ministry for the Arts are very important in ensuring that the festival can be realized.  The Swiss foundation for the arts, Pro Helvetia, also supported this year’s festival featuring the Swiss composer Beat Furrer.

“The Dialogues festival is what you might call the experimental platform of the Mozarteum Foundation and has become decisive for the institution’s image. It is wonderful that the entire building is involved and that the presidium and the board of governors make this musical laboratory possible.  As regards the Dialogues – Zeit we can say that the experiment was a success and that the diverse range of concerts was highly appreciated by the audience”, stated Matthias Schulz enthusiastically at the end of the festival.

The next Dialogues festival takes place from 30 November to 4 December 2016. The programme will be announced early in the summer.
