Pinakothek der Moderne



Registration is not required (Distribution of wristbands for the exhibition room)

Ten students of the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich, under the direction of Prof. Reto Bieri, dedicate themselves to the exhibition theme “Heading Outdoors”. The concert in three parts and at three locations reflects the longing for open space and freedom. The musicians begin in the exhibition space, move to the rotunda in the second part, and finally play outside in front of the Pinakothek der Moderne. Music and location are set in motion equally. The individual pieces of music revolve around the themes of sounding forests and meadows, liberated sounds as well as longing for faraway places and travel. Indoor and outdoor seating invites visitors to linger.

Part 1 Inside: In the exhibition room “Heading Outdoors”
