Lilac 94 is pleased to be part of a rare production of KLANG: The 24 Hours of the Day by one of the 20th century’s most important composers, Karlheinz Stockhausen. Intended
to include 24 pieces but left incomplete at the time of Stockhausen’s death (2007), this 21-part work gives space
to meditate on time, spirituality, and reality, allowing the audience to reflect on the meaning of mortality. Charting the journey of the soul from the body into the afterlife, it is the final, epic statement of the composer and a fitting capstone to Stockhausen’s massive career. The music ranges from intimate chamber pieces to virtuosic displays and electronic extravaganzas. This production features performances by Cologne’s MusikFabrik, light paintings by Thomas Dunn, and sound projection by Dolph Kamper. Lilac 94 performs KLANG's second part, "Freude" (Joy), which was written for two harps.
