AUDREY CHEN SOLO @ WIEN MODERN, VIENNA, AUSTRIA
Wien Modern 31
Security in music, as Nikolaus Harnoncourt argued, always leads to a loss in beauty. Security and beauty are simply not compatible. A breathtaking balancing act of virtuosity, of blind groping, of lines throws to breaking point, and lightning quick reactions - "an artist who wants to achieve the utmost has to go to the farthest edge of the abyss, to the brink of catastrophe, so to speak, and there is maximum beauty. We should not be around in comfort zones. "(Nikolaus Harnoncourt). Between 28. 10 and 30. 11. 2018, Vienna Modern invites you to series of exciting encounters with "unplayable" masterpieces and with the most diverse range of artists pushing the boundaries between freedom and control.
