Irene Kurka – neue musik leben. Das Buch zum Podcast Band II (ARE Verlag, book)

When Irene Kurka launched her podcast neue musik leben in 2018, she filled a gap in the field of contemporary music in the German-speaking world: the soprano not only shared insights into her own working practice, but also invited other important figures on the scene to talk at length about this or that topic. All the episodes are still archived online as audio material, but after Kurka already presented a first compendium of transcribed solo episodes and interviews with protagonists of the New Music scene a while ago, she now follows that up with »neue musik leben. Das Buch zum Podcast Band II.« Included are conversations with Christina C. Messner, Manos Tsangaris and Moritz Eggert, among others.
