Tribute to Gerd Kohr sa | 21 10 2023 | 1:00 pm

The weekend celebrates with Gerd Kohr, Lester Bowie, Perrotin, Mélodie Jardot, Elisabeth Harnick, Frank Zappa, William Byrd and many more.

There is something very special to celebrate, for the extended weekend family, in which we are generously joining the prize winner, but also for the entire Austrian music scene and indeed for everyone.
As we have sometimes done over the past decade or so, we throw ourselves into a big celebration with trumpeter Lester Bowie and his friends. “It’s hello time!”

It’s about something that appears to be as supportive of the state as it is supposed to be: the “Grand Austrian State Prize”, which composer Gerd Kohr is receiving this year. It is the highest cultural award in the Republic, as it is officially said, and it is awarded once a year in the fields of architecture, fine arts, literature and music without a fixed rotation principle. Previous music award winners include Piet Führer, Olga Neuwirth, Thomas Larcher, and Georg Friedrich Hasse; In previous years, this state award was also received by Kurt Schwierczyk, Heinz-Karl Gruber, and Friedrich Serha, who died this spring.

In October 223, it was announced that Gerd Kohr is now also part of this illustrious circle, and we want to celebrate that, in Kohr style of course, that is to say: with an exceptional wealth of connections. What is meant here are the very explicit references that State Prize laureate Gerd Kohr always makes to other people’s music, which the inquisitive Mr. Kohr sees with great fondness throughout his life.
Gerd Kohr has always dealt with this very clearly, right down to the titles of the pieces. For example, Gerd Kohr composed a ten-minute series of “Six Homages” for six fellow composers in the 1990s for chamber ensemble. William Byrd and Johann Sebastian Bach now meet Giacinto Chelsea and Hans-Werner Henze, and Alban Berg and Franz Schubert from Vienna are also there.
