by BWW News Desk - Mar 2, 2014

The S.E.M. Ensemble, under the direction of Petr Kotik, presents three concerts celebrating composer Christian Wolff's 80th birthday and his unique contribution to the Ostrava Days Institute and Festival. Mostly self-taught and working along such figures as John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Morton Feldman and Frederic Rzewski, Christian Wolff made an important mark on the music of our time. Since Ostrava Days' inception in 2001, Wolff has participated in all but one of the festivals, and some of his most ambitious orchestral works were composed for or performed there. Selected by Artforum as one of the Best of 2013 in Music, Ostrava Days is one of the largest international summer new-music events, combining a three-week institute with a 10-day, 17-event festival and focusing on music for large ensembles. It includes 35 resident-students from around the world, two resident orchestras, and resident composers and musicians who participate in public performances. Besides Christian Wolff, Ostrava Days 2013 included, among others, Philip Glass, Peter Ablinger, Bernhard Lang, Petr Kotik, Carola Bauckholt, Jon Gibson, Charlemagne Palestine, and Petr Cigler.
