An incredible ritual carved into history. This is Music for Matera by the Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas (Graz, 1953), who realises a dream with this work: to make the ancient part of the city of Matera vibrate to a single sound, to harmonise it with a music that resounds in the full and in the voids of its unmistakable geometries. Traffic comes to a halt. The church bells, however, continue to ring out as if nothing had happened: their sound is combined with what becomes the 'symphony of a city' in an intense interaction between performer and environment.

‘Music for Matera’ returns to the psycho-geographic mapping of a city that has left an indelible impression on the composer's retina and his imagination,  from the moment he laid eyes on it.
