Windkraft – Kapelle für Neue Musik will perform Erika Fox’s “Kaleidoscope” at the Festival Zeitimpuls 2020 in a programme titled “Frauen im Exil” (Women in Exile) alongside works by Ursula Mamlok and Sofia Gubaidulina. The concert is due to take place at the Kultrusalon, Innsbruck on Friday 16 October.
One of Erika Foxes most performed works, Kaleidoscope
for flute, harp, vibraphone and cello as its title suggests composed using tiny motivic fragments, repeated over and over and transformed through being placed in a different context each time.
“I chose the two pairs of instruments for their strongly contrasted character, as I have always been interested in the drama of opposites. The ‘cool’ flute and passionate cello provide the lyrical melodic element and the gentle harp and agile vibraphone the harmonic and colouristic one, though sometimes these roles are reversed.”Erika Fox
