In Vain

Insomnio

One of the greatest masterworks of the 21st century; this is how American music journalist Alex Ross described In Vain. This musical creation by the Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas is fascinating and overwhelming. Music full of madness, fear, amazement, and dreams, in a sometimes pitch-black auditorium. In Vain has achieved a cult status in a very short time. This is all the more remarkable because the work defies comparison: not with an existing style, or with another composer, nothing.

No one can describe In Vain better than conductor Simon Rattle: 'In Vain is an awesome work of art. It is one of the first really recognized masterworks of the 21st century. This is all the more remarkable if you consider that the composer never thought that the work, lasting over an hour, would ever be performed. It has, for instance, no real clues for conventional tuning and you listen for twenty minutes in complete darkness. Yet it has become a cult piece. Everywhere it is performed, the audience responds in the same fashion: hungry for more.'

from the press

'Waves of opulently strange, beautiful sounds...It often seemed that supernatural forces were at work... Hard to believe that these otherworldly sounds were coming from acoustic, not electronic, instruments. A masterpiece.' (The New York Times)
