"inside/out", a concert by Solistensemble Kaleidoskop with Ernstalbrecht Stiebler, explores the possibilities of an inner perception of sound, a "listening-in" to strange sound spaces.
The concert will present music by composers who are important reference points for Stiebler, from Dieter Schnebel and Walter Zimmermann to Mozart and Puccini. Rashad Becker complements the evening by bringing Stiebler’s music into the electronic music realm.
Due to the quiet nature of some of the performed works, entry into the concert hall will be closed after the concert begins. Please arrive on time.

Kompakt sublabel m-minimal sites Ernstalbrecht Stiebler (born in Berlin in 1934) as the first German composer to explore minimal techniques in his works in reaction to the serialism dominant in the mid-twentieth century. Though his compositions are relatively unknown, Stiebler has garnered enormous respect for his long career in radio production.
