Schallfeld is an international ensemble for contemporary music based in Graz. The group sparks the interest of its audience by its vivid virtuosity and refined chamber music sound, paired with interpretations that pay special attention to concert format, creating events that adapt to the specific venue while aiming for a new dimension of listening.
For ManiFeste-2021, the ensemble premieres the new piece for chamber music and electronics by young composer Rachel Beja, endorsed by ULYSSES network and who works in IRCAM studios for the first time.
Anna Piroli, an Italian soprano specialized in baroque and contemporary repertoire, will join the ensemble for the French premiere of Maurizio Azzan Ariadne, “monodrama-installation”, on a text by Daniele Bellomi.
