Musical compositions, connected with memories of the First World War and created specially for the festival by Russian and Austrian composers together with media artists.
The name was given to the festival by the one-man dramatic show by the Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg. It was one of his outstanding works, composed in 1909, several years before the outbreak of the World War I. At the festival, the Studio of New Music performed scores from the early 20th century, which reflected the atmosphere of the prewar and wartime years («Expectation» by Schoenberg, “The Soldier’s Tale” by Igor Stravinsky), as well as new compositions, created specially for the festival by Russian and Austrian composers together with media artists: seven world premiers were held in the Meyerhold Theatre Centre and (as part of the festival Night of the Museums) at the FABRIKA Center for Creative Industries.
Organizers of the Project: Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory and the Austrian Culture Forum Moscow together with the cultural association das weisse haus Wien, The Meyerhold Theatre Center, and the Center for Creative Industries FABRIKA.
