An inquisitive explorer of sounds orchestral and electronic, musical and textual, Olga Neuwirth (b. 1968) returns to Miller. A student of Nono and Murail, the Austrian composer first burst onto the international scene at age 22, when her operas premiered at the Vienna Festival; debuts at Salzburg and Lucerne soon followed.
