Art celebrates its 1,000,058. Date of birth! And this year the Ö1 Kunstradio is responding to this call together with artists’ associations, broadcasting houses and artists in Austria and around the world. This year in the form of an Ö1 Art Sunday Special, which will unfold directly on the birthday of art – on January 17, 2021 from 7.30 p.m. to midnight on-air and on-line. Anna Soucek and Hans Groiss will guide you through the art birthday and the Austrian composer, clarinetist and saxophonist Vincent Pongracz, who was born in Vienna in 1985, will perform live. He will be both solo and with Beate Wiesinger and with his band Synesthetic4, which consists of Andreas Lettner, Manuel Mayr and Peter Rom, bringing the art to life. Both pieces from Pongracz’s new solo album “Synesthetic Ivo – 2V0” and compositions by the band will be presented. Dadaist rap interludes shape the music, which moves humorously between jazz, hip-hop and contemporary music. Visual inserts come from the artist duo Gruber / Bertsch, which can be followed on the video stream of the Radiokulturhaus.

Video recordings available soon.
