“Take the Blame, Father or Death Be Writ into My Heart“

Music for texts from the same-named novel by Josef Winkler
The Wachauer Pestbläser make music for, with, and about Josef Winkler. “Take the Blame, Father...” deals with and negotiates the collective silence about events that cannot be silenced. With their music the Wachauer Pestbläser try to match the roaring silence in all of the ostensible, deep, and abysmal narratives, which the Carinthian writer Josef Winkler has virtuously brought to paper and language in his village novel “Take the Blame, Father or Death Be Writ into My Heart“, nominated for the Österreichische Buchpreis 2018. The Wachauer Pestbläser help themselves and the people to bear the silence of our times.

In cooperation with Literaturhaus Europa.
Tip: At 17:00 there is a concert by the AIR – Artist in Residence James Rushford at Ernst Krenek Forum. Admission is free!
