Works by Michael Maierhof

Maierhof is one of Europe's most important young composers. He has been commissioned to write works for Europe's leading ensembles such as Musik Farbrique and L'Art pour L'Art. these compositions have debuted at music festivals including Darmstadt, Alba and Steirischer Herbst. Several of maierhof's compositions are very precisely scored to video projections while other incorporate the use of unorthodox objects such as balloons, ceramic tiles and plastic cups. Friday's bill will feature works for chamber ensembles. Saturday's bill features a work for 21 performers with balloons. Ensemble Noamnesia will perform these concerts with special guest Austrian cellist Michael Moser.
