In the organizer's words:
From the Old High German "gougalon" derives, among other things, the word "gaukeln": In her eponymous ensemble work, Unsuk Chin uses contemporary musical means to compose six "scenes from a street theater" inspired by the juxtaposition of hypermodern urbanity and storied, winding residential neighborhoods during her childhood in 1960s Seoul. Matthias Pintscher and the Boulez Ensemble combine Chin's "imaginary folk music" with Arnold Schoenberg's incidental music for an equally imagined "light play scene" and the evocative polyrhythms in György Ligeti's Piano Concerto. The soloist is the young pianist Julia Hamos, a graduate of the Barenboim-Said Academy. The program opens with Mozart's C minor Serenade.
