On February 13, the World Premiere of ocean is not enough for 13 performers by Wojtek Blecharz was given by the Klangforum Wien, conducted by Clemont Power. This new work by Blecharz was commissioned as a part of Klangforum’s “impuls” program, and the premiere took place during the impuls Festival 2015.
Impuls promotes and supports young composers not only within its Academy, but also through the impuls Composition Competition. impuls commissions up to 6 new works for ensemble every second year from young composers selected by a jury. Subsequently these composers are invited to take part in the impuls Composition Workshop in Vienna and Graz – where their new works are collectively rehearsed and discussed extensively with musicians of world-class ensembles such as Klangforum Wien– as well as to the premiere of their new pieces within the impuls Academy and Festival in Graz. Impuls also intends to support the composers’ works beyond that through recordings respectively broadcasting and additional concerts.
