Il faut continuer (It must go on)


Ensemble SurPlus was founded in 1992 by the eminent pianist and conductor James Avery (1937-2009). The Ensemble performs chamber music ranging from duos to large instrumental combinations. Its primary objective is to give new or unknown works an optimal performance, regardless of compositional style or technical and intellectual demands. After its formation in 1992 the ensemble was invited in the same year to perform at the International Summer Courses for New Music in Darmstadt. In 1993 it was engaged to give the first performance of a contemporary chamber opera at the Archipel Festival in Geneva, which received enthusiastic critical acclaim. Since that time it has gained increasing recognition on the international scene for contemporary music and has been a frequent guest at festivals throughout Europe (Musica Viva, mehr!klang, Donaueschingen) Asia and North America (June in Buffalo, Stanford University, University of Victoria). In addition to performing in traditional concert settings, SurPlus also welcomes experimental projects, improvisation and Music Theater. A close cooperation with Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart has existed since 1994. Most recently the Ensemble has collaborated in the project “New Music Network” funded by the German Ministry of Culture, working with young people in the German school system in order to educate a young public about new music. The ensemble has also collaborated closely with the Experimental Studio of the German Radio (SWR). Numerous CD productions and recordings (Ferneyhough, Clark, Spahlinger, Mahnkopf, Wolpe with Heinz Holliger) document the great versatility of the ensemble. The ensemble is based in Freiburg, Germany.

    Trio SurPlus was founded in 1992 by members of the Ensemble SurPlus in Freiburg, Germany with the goal of interpreting new and unknown composers irrespective of style and intellectual or technical requirements. The Trio SurPlus has given numerous premieres and through its efforts created a repertoire for the unusual instrumentation of oboe, piano, and percussion.

    Concert series and masterclasses have brought the trio to other European countries as well as Canada, the USA and South-East-Asia. A CD of Trio SurPlus is available on Edition Zeitklang.

Documentation

The musicians of Ensemble SurPlus, together with their audiences, the composers, and radio- and CD-listeners can look back on three seasons, in which Ensemble SurPlus has expanded its activities and broadened its horizons.
Alongside their first guest appearances at Harvard-University, Boston, in Ecuador and Korea, long standing institutional cooperation and international commitments were maintained. Not only renewed invitations to Buffalo/New York, the home of one of the leading festivals for new music in North America, but also the summer courses at the Academy “Schloss Solitude“ in Stuttgart, run by an internationally acclaimed group of composers were on the ensemble‘s programme. At the same time, activities in Freiburg, where the ensemble is based, have been undergoing continuous development. The pedagogically orientated projects such as workshops, lecture concerts, discussion concerts have been intensified, not only targeting the expert audience, but also a broad circle of recipients, for instance pupils at secondary school or young instrumentalists, participating in a competition. Live recordings of concert performances were broadcasted by “Südwestrundfunk“ and “Deutschlandradio Kultur“.
The Ensemble also gained support from regional institutions, such as the Cultural Office Freiburg and the Regional Council of Freiburg, from nationally orientated institutions like the National Culture Foundation, as well as special support for international activities by the Foreign Office (Goethe Institut). In 2010, the ensemble received an award from the Ernst-von-Siemens Music Foundation with the purpose of commissioning compositions for the ensemble - the works by Prof. Dieter Mack (Musikhochschule Lübeck) and Prof. Claus-Steffen Mahnkopf (Musikhochschule Leipzig) will be premiered 2012 at the anniversary concert in celebration of 20 years of Ensemble SurPlus in Freiburg, the compositions by Prof. Daniel Biró (Vancouver, Canada) will be premiered January 19th, 2013 in Toronto. In the above mentioned activities, Ensemble SurPlus remained true to its ideals - particularly by choosing outstanding works and concepts, regardless of the possible difficulties. They thus not only overcame exceptional technical challenges but have also developed a fresh approach to their performance modalities - on one hand, performing under renowned guest conductors and on the other, rehearsing extremely ambitious compositions either completely without a conductor or with an ensemble member conducting. In addition to the actual rehearsing and performing, the musicians themselves have deepened their pedagogical, musicological and concert-didactical activities, and have hence contributed to the intensive cooperation with institutions and musicians in Freiburg and beyond.

25 Jahre Ensemble SurPlus

E-Werk Freiburg

Ensemble SurPlus

... offene Enden ...

Konzert zum 25-jährigen Bestehen des Ensembles

Impulse, Anstöße, Auslöser - seit 25 Jahren versteht das Ensemble SurPlus die Musik seiner Zeit als herausforderndes, weitertreibendes, sich ständig verwandelndes Gegenüber und hat sich ihr in überzeugter Offenheit verpflichtet. Doch auch der Rückblick auf Ausgangspunkte, Knotenpunkte und Verzweigungen im umfangreichen Repertoire fördert immer wieder Unentdecktes, Unabgeschlossenes und Anderszuhörendes zu Tage. Der anhaltenden Bewegtheit im Voraus- wie im Rückblick steht schließlich die Vielzahl erfüllter Momente zur Seite und gegenüber, in denen die Konzertbühne zu einem Ort intensiver musikalischer Gegenwart wird.

Aus dieser dreifachen Perspektive stellt sich das im Jubiläumskonzert präsentierte Programm als ebenso rätsel- wie beziehungsvolle Konstellation von Werken dar, die zunächst wenig zu verbinden scheint, die sich aber umso stärker als Resonanzräume füreinander öffnen und zu individueller Spurensuche einladen.

Dániel Péter Birós Komposition Mishpatim I ist mit ihrer Nähe zur Sprache, ihren alttestamentarischen Textfragmenten und ihrer zugleich nach Innen und auf Jenseitiges gerichteten Gedanken- und Klangwelt ein Ausgangspunkt besonderer Art. Der gesamte gleichnamige Zyklus von Biró wird überdies in diesem Jahr in einer Aufnahme des Ensemble SurPlus auf CD erscheinen.

Gänzlich in instrumentale Musik verwandelt hat sich die literarische Keimzelle von Sidney Corbetts Gesängen der Unruhe, in denen Fernando Pessoas berühmtes Buch der Unruhe mit seinen irritierend kreisenden Fragmenten nachklingt.

Ist Birós Werk ein Anfang, so führen die beiden Ensemblestücke Delos und Night von James Clarke eine Doppelexistenz als selbständige Kompositionen und als Schlusssätze seiner Kammersinfonie. Auch sie sind von existentiellen Unruhe erfüllt und verknüpfen in vieldeutiger Weise Erinnerungen an einen antiken Mythos mit einer Nachtmusik sehr unvertrauten Charakters. Entfaltet der Klang hier suggestive Wirkungen, so präsentiert er sich in Bruno Mantovanis Concerto de chambre No.2 in elastisch-energetischen Verläufen, die ein vitales Zentrum des Abends bilden. Ergänzt wird das Programm durch eine Triokomposition, die jüngst für das Ensemble geschrieben wurde und für ein weiteres, in die Zukunft gerichtetes und offenes Ende des künstlerischen Spektrums steht.
