    Standing on the hills of the Steinhofgründe in the 14th district, Otto Wagner’s famous Church of St. Leopold is one of the jewels of Vienna’s architecture. Its interior is a fascinating play of golden ornament and white light. An intriguing place for a special encounter between two generations of pioneering female composers: Mary Jane Leach came of age in the legendary downtown scene of 1970s New York. Her music is famous for creating other-worldly, spiritual ambiences, engulfing the audience with her deft manipulation of sound. Sarah Davachi’s work explores the delicate psychoacoustics of intimate aural spaces, utilising extended durations and simple harmonic structures to emphasise subtle variations and natural resonances. The link between the composers is the pipe organ. Commissioned by the Wiener Festwochen, Mary Jane Leach will present a new work for this instrument. Sarah Davachi will perform an extended version of her composition If It Pleased Me To Appear To You Wrapped In This Drapery. She herself will be at the organ, accompanied by a host of local musicians.
