faithful! II Fidelity and Betrayal of Musical Interpretation
November 13 – 23 • Berlin

How is this possible?
Audiences may be at times surprised or irritated, when interpretations of one and the same composition sound as if they were completely different works.
With faithful! II these very irritations become the content. The Berlin festival for contemporary music takes up the question of the Fidelity and Betrayal of musical interpretation once again in this year’s edition. With a wide array of concerts, talks and experiments, faithful! II opens up an exciting interplay between musicians, composers, and listeners.
