Let's sharpen our ears for the music of the 21st century!
Every year in November, Lucerne Festival Forward offers contemporary music a platform and gives a voice to the musicians of the younger generation. In the podcast "Deep Listening", dramaturge Mark Sattler introduces us to the four programs of the Forward Festival in short conversations with the involved artists.
We talk to Swedish singer Sofia Jernberg who will perform at the Opening Concert of the third edition of Lucerne Festival Forward. In Switzerland's biggest movie space – the filmtheatre of the Swiss Museum of Transport – she will explore both intimate and overwhelmingly synesthetic music making: After singing Julius Eastman's harrowing solo piece "Prelude to The Holy Presence of Joan d'Arc", Sofia teams up with the Ensemble of the Lucerne Festival Contemporary Orchestra and conductor Johanna Malangré for Fausto Romitelli's monumental video opera "An Index of Metals".
Hear Sofia Jernberg live at the Opening Concert of Lucerne Festival Forward on 17 November at the Filmtheatre of the Swiss Museum of Transport
Sofia will also perform in the Concert "Death/Life" on 19 November in the KKL Luzern
